another piece of advice please, i hope someone can help me with? i have some beautiful praying mantice in my garden, which i enjoy watching however i also have large bug type things , [ aproxx 6-7 inches long ] which i thought were grasshoppers. they fly, they are brown in colour, and adore my dahlias,acer and rhus.they have been in the garden for 5 weeks now. the way they are eating my plants, they will be stripped down to the bone! could they be locusts,which are very alike? i would be greatfull to any member who could throw some light on this. sorry, no photo, iam new to this computer lark,and its hard enough just getting around the keyboard!!
