Two Striped Grasshopper


Two Striped grasshopper's upper surface is dull olive brown and a pale under surface that is pale yellow to green. A narrow yellow stripe extends from behind each eye to nearly the tip of the wing covers. When full-grown this grasshopper is a little more than one inch long. It is the most common of the early summer grasshoppers.

Two Striped Grasshopper

Twostriped grasshopper is a polyphagous species. It feeds on many kinds of plants. Although grasses and cereals are eaten and damaged, rearing experiments show that certain forbs furnish the nymphs with diets that promote high survival, fast growth, and heavy weights. These host plants belong to several plant families


Two striped grasshopper overwinters in the egg stage. Depending on weather conditions, the nymphs normally emerge in May or early June.Nymphs closely resemble adults, although they are smaller and lack wings. Within 6 or 7 weeks, having undergone five molts, they become adults. Late springs and cool damp summers retard maturity so that nymphs are often found into autumn.

Damage:Grasshoppers cause some damage every year, but they become very destructive during outbreaks. The main factor affecting grasshopper populations is weather. Outbreaks, or exceptionally large populations, are usually preceded by several years of hot, dry summers and warm autumns. Dry weather increases the survival of nymphs and adults. Warm autumns allow grasshoppers more time to feed and lay eggs.
