    The last few years I have been plagued with lubbers. For those of you lucky enough not to know them, lubbers begin as little black nymphs and grow into gigantic devour everything in sight grasshoppers. I garden organically and have had mild success with some organic sprays however it is like they overwinter and each year I have more. What to do?

    One of my gardening buddies told me to use Spinosad and although the label does not say it is good for eradicating lubbers, I tried it and they appear to be gone! The big proof will be weather or not the huge grasshoppers appear. I will keep you posted.
