Adult grasshoppers living in colder climates do not survive the winter, leaving only their eggs behind to eventually hatch when the weather warms up again. Grasshoppers found in warmer climates that do not experience freezing temperatures can live for several years, but are more likely to die from predators or disease before living for an extended period of time.
Grasshoppers live on almost every continent in the world, with the exception of Antarctica. Some types of grasshoppers can live in forest or jungle habitats, while most prefer habitats that are dry and abundant in short plants and grass. Grasshoppers may sometimes feed at night, but are diurnal in nature and are much more active during daytime hours.
