The Great Grasshopper Scourge of 2010

"Once every 7 - 10 years", they say

These things came a bunch of months ago, in Biblical proportions, started eating EVERYTHING in sight, and have not stopped since, the stinking b****rs.

We have lost our fruit trees, and the rose bushes are just barely hanging on.


THIS one hitched a ride with us on the windshield wiper, and stayed on the whole 7 miles at 70 mph speeds on the highway into town.

Maybe it needed dental floss at Walmart.

Yikes! That sounds awful. At least with the cicadas, it's every 17 years.
