GRANTSVILLE, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Grasshoppers infested a Grantsville backyard last Wednesday.
Homeowner Karla Baum said the grasshoppers destroyed her garden, and were thick enough to coat her entire screen door.
Baum said, however, that her prayers were answered when a flock of seagulls landed and ate the insects in the backyard.
She accredited her LDS faith and mentioned her ancestors' experiences in which seagulls came to eat grasshoppers and saved crops in Utah back in 1848.
The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food said that this happens naturally from time to time.
