A slighty wetter spring helped suppress grasshopper numbers in most areas throughout the state, according to Texas A&M extension officials.
The insects cause millions in crop damage every summer in Texas, according to Texas A&M Agrilife Extension agent Robert Burns. However, early spring rains are leading to smaller grasshopper populations than in recent years.
