What is a good grasshopper herb repellent?


Answer by  mano (76)

The best and natural grasshopper herb repellent is garlic oil. The strong stench of the garlic oil keeps the hoppers away from the herbs. Insecticidal potassium soap also works best in preventing the hoppers. We can also plant the herb horehound (Marrubium vulgare) which is known to repel grasshoppers along with the other methods.
