I have one acre and 10 million grasshoppers of all sizes. Liquids kills but more just hatch. I think they are in our trees also.
While granules do provide a more long term residual on the ground, it may or may not control the grasshoppers any better than a liquid. The ingredient in the Talstar, Bifenthrin, is one of our number one products for controlling grasshoppers. 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.
