    In Florida we have these enormous lubber grasshoppers. If there is a benefit to them, I haven't found it.

    I feel the same way about the ones we have here Douglas. I've disliked them since I was a child for jumping on my legs, but have a whole new reason for that now as you can see above. After the first summer we had almost thirty windows to replace screening on. A few years later when we did the screened porch we were a bit concerned with using the same screening we'd replaced on all the windows, but didn't want a huge black hole on the front corner of the house so we decided to take a chance. The first year was fine and we thought it was a fluke that the grasshoppers at the window screens. The next summer they attacked the screen on the sunporch so we broke down and used the solar screening. It is very nice for privacy. You can't see in the Solar Screen unless lights are on (just shadows then) or if ones face is pressed against it. Yes I would most definitely have to add grasshoppers to the "bad" list of bugs.
