Hello William, thanks for your question. We unfortunately don't have a product that's registered for use against grasshoppers on stone fruit. Our best recommendations to help manage the grasshoppers would be:

1. Net fruit trees 

2. Hand remove minor infestations - this can be done early in the morning when they're moving the slowest

3. Remove grass and weeds directly under the plant to reduce hiding places for grasshoppers

4. Create beds of diverse plants and flowers away from but near the trees to attract beneficial insects like parasitic wasps that will naturally help control grasshoppers

There's some more information here on our website about grasshoppers and control.
