Have you noticed more grasshoppers than normal this year?

Literally, they're everywhere! Every day when I get home from work, they are scattered all over my porch in Manhattan. Fortunately, grasshoppers don't cause much property damage, and they make great fishing bait.

I've talked to a few people knowledgable on the topic and was told that the increase in grasshopper population is due to the amount of moisture Montana received over the past year.

Last week, I recorded a video of the massive amount of grasshoppers that have decided to call my front yard home.

Watch the video below:
