Melanoplus bruneri is common in the lower- and mid-elevation areas of the mountains of Wyoming. It prefers
areas of sparsely timbered prairie or dry mountain meadows. Eggs overwinter in the
soil and at high elevations may take two years to hatch. Adults are present from July
to September. This species is probably a mixed feeder with little economic importance
in Wyoming. There have been reports of damage to mountain grasslands in Canada and
in the United States.
