So As I am fighting the earwig front, another front has opened on my trees.

The tanglefoot is keepin the crawlers at bay, but now my trees are getting defoliated by flying insects. I have seen both 1.5" long brown/gray grasshoppers and junebugs in the area. Which one do you think is the culprit? The bites are large and start from the leaf edge inward.
