This excellent grasshopper and cricket control is approved for NOP certified organic production!

Target pests: Over 90 species of Grasshoppers, Locusts and Mormon Crickets.

Nolo is a spreadable bait made from flaky wheat bran coated with Nosema locustae. This easy to apply pathogen is harmless to humans, pet, birds and wildlife. The insect pathogen multiplies in infected grasshoppers and will pass from grasshopper to grasshopper and can remain active for several years.

How it Works: Nolo Bait contains Nosema locustae, a naturally occurring single celled protozoan infects all stages of developing grasshoppers, mole crickets, Mormon and black field crickets. When ingested Nosema locustae creates a disease that is specific to these pests. It will not harm any other living species.

Grasshoppers typically lay eggs in Southern exposure locations in hilly, sandy soil. As they hatch they will begin to travel to their food source (your garden or farm). Head them off by applying Nosema in swaths as a barrier about 1 foot wide, or by generally broadcasting product in and around area to be protected. Grasshoppers will begin to feed on spore-infected bran. After eating Nolo Bait grasshoppers become sick, eat less, and begin to die. The disease spreads to healthy grasshoppers through cannibalism. In 2-4 weeks, 50% of the population will die, and most survivors will be infected to continue spreading the disease. Infected survivors eat 75% less than healthy grasshoppers and lay fewer eggs. Nosema works best when applied to younger stages of hoppers (1/4 to 1/2-inch long). Heavy infestations may require a higher application rate and/or repeat applications.
