Grasshopper populations are growing throughout the state. Texas farmers already dealing with poor crops due to the lack of rain now have more grasshoppers than usual. Fungus is one of the natural controllers of grasshopper population, but it needs moisture to grow. Because there is very little fungal growth, grasshoppers are thriving. Grasshoppers eat grass and cattle ranchers depend on that grass to feed their livestock. In normal years this is usually only a minor problem, but this year is worse. The good news is that with this exceptional drought grasshopper eggs have a hard time hatching. Eggs hatch from April to June.
