Don't know if this will work for your hoppers since they sound more
aggressive than ours but I've been using a row cover (supported by anything
handy) made of craft netting. Similar to bridal netting, it can be found in
most fabric shops but is considerably less expensive.

While hoppers can still chew through it, most decide it isn't worth the
effort and move on to something else. Flexible window screen is another
option and can be found by the yard at most hardware stores.
