Correction: Although grasshoppers are generally plant eaters, they don't mind eating smaller creatures that they eat along with the plants that they are sitting on. In fact, in parts of Africa where locust swarms sometimes occur (probably in parts of Asia and America as well) the people living there are pleased when locusts come in, as long as they have enough to eat when the locusts have left, because the locusts eat a lot of pests on the plants, such as ticks.
Also there is at least one lot of "long-horned grasshoppers" (Some people call long-horned grasshoppers katydids.) making up the sub-family Saginae, that eat practically only the insects that they can catch. Some of them at least occur in South Africa They have specially spiky legs for catching their prey. Some Australian grasshoppers that either are in the same subfamily or a very similar one, mostly eat cicadas.
The following statements are generally true, but as you can see from what I have said, are not always true.
Grasshoppers never eat other insects<WRONG (Improved) Actually some female grasshoopers bite head off and eat their opposite after mating. Grasshoppers are not picky about the plants they eat. They will eat the grass in your yard and they will eat the crops you have in your field.
Grasshoppers are insects with jaws for them to chew their food.
They eat carrots,cabage and other plants in your backyard.
It is also a pest to some farmers since it eats their crops.
Lettuce, wheat, most vegetables.
