Could we use demon in our landscape and around the home for a heavy grasshopper problem?

we are having a horrible grasshopper problem and was wondering if we could use demon?


Demon WP is not labeled to control grasshoppers, so although you could spray it in landscaping for general insect control, the label doesn't state that it would work on this pest. A better option would be something Talstar which contains Bifenthrin. You should start applications before the grasshoppers have a chance to hatch. You should thoroughly spray your lawn and water in the application with about a .25 in of water to help the bifenthrin get past the thatch layer and into the soil where grass hoppers actually develop. If you already have grasshoppers you can use Talstar P at the highest usage rate of 1 oz of product per 1 gallon of water for the quickest knockdown.
