Stop Grasshoppers Dead in Their Tracks!

How it Works: Semaspore Bait contains Nosema locustae, a naturally occurring single celled protozoan infects all stages of developing grasshoppers, mole crickets, Mormon and black field crickets. Nosema when ingested 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 Semaspore 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 repeat applications.

Note: Use by expiration date. If refrigerated add 30 days to expiration date; if frozen add 90 days.
