    Yes, I found that it depends on the type of grasshopper and they type of crop. The website said that grasshoppers can destroy entire crops of alfalfa, clover, cotton, corn and other grains, causing millions of dollars in crop damages every year.

    Given the perfect conditions (temperature, climate, availability of food), grasshoppers are known to exist in plagues.  There have been multiple noted grasshopper plagues throughout time.  These plagues rip through crop after crop to feed the insatiable hunger of their astronomical populations.  There is no taxonomical difference between grasshoppers and locusts, and we have all heard about the locust swarms that have devoured crops and livelihoods over the course of history.
