We just moved to the Las Vegas area and this is our first time needing pest control at our home but after a friend freaked me out about the thought of scorpions climbing into my baby's crib I needed to start service asap. I looked up companies online and Bulwark had the best reviews. Our tech that came out, Seth Trotter was very friendly, courteous and worked really fast. He explained everything in great detail and reassured me that scorpions won't come after my kids. I am really glad I chose Bulwark for our pest control needs and from reading other reviews it looks like the company really stands behind their work and if any bugs are seen they come and quickly take care of the issue. Thanks again!!

Grasshoppers can walk, hop and fly. Female grasshoppers �sing� by rubbing their legs against their wings, or by making an audible snapping sound with their wings while flying. They like to hide in areas with tall grasses, small vacant lots and gardens. Most grasshoppers are very destructive to plants. They sometimes undergo enormous population outbreaks, making mass migrations in search of food. Grasshoppers rarely enter structures, but can become very damaging to urban landscaped areas when populations explode.

How Do Grasshoppers Reproduce?

Females deposit egg pods a few inches into the soil using their ovipositor. One egg pod contains several dozens tightly packed eggs that look like rice grains. The eggs stay in place through the winter, and hatch when the weather has warmed up. The first nymph to hatch tunnels up through the ground and the rest follow.
