Diluted orange oil (1 oz per gallon) is effective on grasshoppers, but if it is not working well enough, consider combining it with neem oil. It works on pests in a different fashion, so the combination should cover all your bases. Here is more information on neem oil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm
