Neat!
At least one species of Nearctic Sarcophagidae have been reported to use Orthopterans as hosts, Hilarella hilarella (Zetterstedt). The reported host was some kind of Rhaphidophoridae.

Edit: Also Blaesoxipha atlanis (Aldrich) has been reported from Melanoplus sanguinipes, Sarcophaga falciformis Aldrich from Melanoplus devastator, and additional records can be seen in a Google scholar search I just did. You'd probably have to get it scoped to figure it out.

 
Lots of species
Genus Blaesoxipha is full of grasshopper parasites.
