Francis –

We suggest not spreading the bait if rain is expected within 8 hours. However, if you have a large number of grasshoppers they will eat the bait in much less time than that. If you have a good weather window at all I suggest getting the bait out there, especially if they are still small.

I like your feeder idea, but feel that you will be limiting the number of grasshoppers that actually find the bait. It’s a numbers game when using Semaspore Bait — the more you can infect initially the better your results will be.

Hope this helps!
