Dear Virginia, thank you for contacting the Invasive Species hotline. Unfortunately, it is very hard to say what you have encountered without an image or a specimen on hand. Grasshoppers change their colorization during their lifetime from immature stages to adults. So, again, difficult to make a definite identification.
