I have had several people inquire about Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers also known as Georgia Thumpers. These grasshoppers are currently appearing in plants around the yard and garden. These grasshoppers have many unique characteristics from their size to their inability to fly. I have attached a University of Florida IFAS Extension publication on this grasshopper.
