Abundance of Grasshoppers Swarming Gallatin Valley

I've talked to a few people knowledgable on the topic and was told that the increase in grasshopper population is due to the amount of moisture Montana received over the past year.
Last week, I recorded a video of the massive amount of grasshoppers that have decided to call my front yard home.
