US emergency funds for grasshopper control

The US government is provide nearly $11 million in emergency funding to control grasshoppers and crickets on federal rangeland this year. The funds will be used primarily for the application of aerial and ground insecticide treatments in response to requests in areas facing economically significant outbreaks. Surveys conducted by the USDA at the end of summer 2009 revealed very high numbers of grasshoppers in many western states, indicating that large outbreaks are likely this year. The states expected to have the heaviest outbreaks are Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.
