  • Massive Swarm of Grasshoppers Wreaks Havoc in Utah – Adding to the Dilemma of Local Farmers Already Suffering from Drought

  • “This is not a common thing,” said Kris Watson, the state entomologist managing Utah’s insect and pest program at the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF). “Grasshoppers themselves are common, but for them to show up on a radar detection — to my understanding, it’s not very common.”
