Grasshopper Forecast Map

2022 Saskatchewan Grasshopper Forecast

Grasshopper numbers increased from 2021 and many incidents of spraying were reported throughout the province and in many crops. Please note that localized hotspots may be underrepresented due to their proximity to lower densities on the map. Heavy populations (30 m2) were detected in the southwest near Enterprise and Maple Creek (the latter was detected in a brown mustard field); populations > 10 m2) were detected in the southwest near Enterprise (multiple sites RM 142), Souris Valley, Fox Valley, southeast near Torquay, Alida, Oungre, and Lampman, northeast near Bjorkdale and northwest near the Battlefords. Moderate counts (5-10 m2) were found at approximately 50 sites throughout the province. No grasshoppers were found on only eight sites. Two-striped grasshoppers were indicated as dominant in many regions where species identification occurred. Migratory grasshopper and clearwing grasshopper was also detected at multiple sites; clearwing grasshopper caused major damage to barley near Cadillac. Clearwing grasshopper numbers were again high in pasture (40 m2) in RM Laurier (SE) in late July. No Entomophthora grylli (fungal pathogen that kills grasshoppers) occurrences were noted.
