Semaspore (Nolo Bait) the Natural Grasshopper Control

Well, spring is finally arriving in our neck of the woods. The plum trees are in bloom and I’m looking for the lilac blossoms any day.

When spring comes I think about how I’m going to prevent grasshopper damage in the summer heat. Last year I found out about Semaspore, also known by the brand name Nolo Bait. I got really excited and bought the biggest bag possible – 25 pounds. However, in reality a 5 pound bag would have been perfect for me. So this year, I plan to get the smaller bag, especially since it has a rather short shelf life. That simply means that the almost full bag of Nolo Bait that I have left is now worthless. I’m still trying to figure out what to do with it.

Semaspore is a biological control that doesn’t harm other insects or birds. It is specific to grasshoppers and crickets and is safe to use since nothing else can be harmed by it. As the first grasshoppers feed on the bran that has the semaspore in it, they begin to get lethargic and eventually die. Other grasshoppers feed on them since they are cannibalistic and they also die. The earlier in the season that you can get your semaspore scattered around your garden, the better. But wait until you begin to see grasshoppers to do it.

I found that the semaspore kept the grasshoppers down to a manageable number thus minimizing the damage to garden crops. You do, however, need to continue to put the bait out if it rains as it will no longer be effective once it is wet.

Here is a link you can use to order Nolo Bait. I highly recommend trying it if you are opposed to using harmful pesticides in your garden. Semaspore (Nolo Bait) the Natural Grasshopper Control
