Jumping grasshoppers this has been quite the summer for those little creators. We are a ranch and generally love nature at it’s best. This summer has been a challenge on the ranch with these little creators.
On the ranch it is common to see; elk, deer, bears, bighorn, rabbits, bobcats, fox, coyotes and a occasional mountain lion but this summer our resident wildlife its an insect – the grasshopper.
I’m sure most of you have heard or read about the Colorado busting out with a migration of grasshoppers. Well they decided to make home this summer on our ranch. We have applied grasshopper pesticides and still can’t keep them under control. I guess a good freeze will help.
We have to have the best brides ever. Many find it good luck when one jumps on them and most say we wanted our wedding on a ranch. Shawn always tells the brides with a big smile you wanted wildlife.
