A Spotted Bird Grasshopper

spotted bird grasshopperThe spotted bird grasshopper, is a large, green or yellowish-brown grasshopper, with a pale yellow band extending from the head to the wing tips, and light yellow spots in the neck region. The adult females are larger than the males, generally growing to a length of almost 2 1/2 inches, while the males tend to be approximately 1 3/4 inches in length.

The Spotted Bird Grasshopper isn't abundant enough to worry about control.

It is an interesting curiosity in late summer/fall when the adults make an appearance.
