The Spur Throated Grasshopper of the BC coastal region
The Spur Throated Grasshopper is part of the family called the short horns, they are the most common species of all the grasshoppers of the pacific northwest.
These grasshoppers can be a brown color with additional colors of green, yellow and orange.
These grasshoppers will lay their eggs directly into the soil where they will remain until the following summer, the nymphs will hatch and feed through the fall, then they start the process over by laying eggs into the soil.
