Grasshoppers wreak havoc on your beautiful garden and tear your plants to shreds. They are indiscriminate with their eating habits and can destroy everything you’ve worked so hard to grow. Sounds scary, but fear not, there is a solution!

Semaspore Bait by Planet Natural is a biological grasshopper control that is an extremely effective solution for your grasshopper problem.  After eating Semaspore, grasshoppers become sick, eat less and begin to die. The disease spore spreads to healthy grasshoppers through cannibalism. In 2-4 weeks, 50% of the grasshopper population die, and most survivors are infected to continue spreading the disease. Infected survivors eat 75% less than healthy grasshoppers and lay fewer eggs. On top of all that, the disease spore only affects grasshoppers, leaving your beneficial insects unaffected.

For those of you who have used Nolo Bait as a grasshopper control in the past, you may be aware that its manufacturer suffered a devastating fire at their production facility this year and are not able to supply Nolo Bait for the remainder of 2018. Semaspore is a great alternative and features the same active ingredient, Nosema locustae. Semaspore is OMRI Listed for use in organic production and does NOT harm people, pets or the environment. Semaspore has an 8 week shelf life but keeps 5 months if refrigerated.
