I have used Kaolin Clay for grasshoppers and it works great in keeping them off the garden plants. I am going to make a trip to the airport (DFW) soon an I was wondering, around that area where I might find a nursary or organic place that would carry the Kaolin Clay.

Also, we come from Hugo, Oklahoma, and travel through Durant, Sherman, Denison............to DFW, so anywhere in that area also that may have a place for the clay.

Thanks

LaDonna

jmgoats, you must have been reading my replies to grasshopper problems. I always suggest people with grasshopper problems get chickens, ducks, or invite the birds with a bird bath, feeder, or bird houses. :D :D You apparently have done all that and still have the pests. How many free running chickens do you have? Do have anything that attracts birds to the yard? I know this is an organic forum so I should not have to ask this, but have you used any chemical pesticides or herbicides recently? I know some people use organic fertilizer but also use some pesticides, so I have to ask.

I have about 35 free range chickens I haven't and I don't intend to use any chemicals. I'd rather find some other way to defeat the beasts. Thank for your reply.

We live in Granbury TX, which is SW of Fort Worth. I get Nolo Bait each year. This will be my 3rd year and they say (on the package inserts) it could take 3-4 years to eliminate the grass hoppers.

I put some out Saturday, June 19th and am already seeing sickly hoppers.
I don't think we'll ever eradicate them around here as we live in the country and nobody else puts anything out. We have lots of birds and a flock of chickens, too.

I do believe the Nolo Bait is every effective. Ordering online we paid $115 for 25 pounds (shipping was $22) and we have 24 acres.

Let me clarify, please:

The shipping cost was part of that total in my other post. 25 pounds of the nolo bait was $84.50 and $22 for shipping. The local place wanted $32 for about 4 pounds.
