I have been invaded by hoppers! Hoppers of all sizes. Hoppers from small green to large brown. There are large numbers of in a plague of hoppers, eating all leafy plants in sight. Correction...all  leafy vegetation except for  weeds!

They are everywhere...even hanging from the windows...

Large ones with wings...

While most of these will fly away, avoiding contact, I'm encountering some that  fly towards me, hitting  with a stinging force. Honestly, there is no enjoying the outdoors, and gardening is a lost cause.  There is no stopping them!  A friend, and others in the area have reported that they too have been invaded. So it is around here...the year of the hoppers.
