If you don't like the way their breath smells then don't kiss them.

Turkey's and Guinea Fowl are permaculture solutions. Traps made with yellow
sticky paper are supposed to work also. But I can't verify. Can verify
Guinea Fowl make short work of grasshoppers.

Bantam chooks are also grasshopper eaters, and they like the minted ones.

Cover it with old sheer curtain material bought from a charity shop. The
only way to deal with grasshoppers is to exclude them completley and to keep
the mint covered till the grasshoppers disappear.
