organic insect spray safe for my dogs?

I made an organic spray mixture with vinegar and dish soap (dawn original) to spray on grasshoppers that have invaded our garden and house. I haven't been able to pick up all of the dead grasshoppers and I'm concerned about my dogs eating the grasshoppers I've sprayed. Is this safe or dangerous for my dogs?

the soap might upset their digestive system if they eat bunches of dead insects, but I doubt they would with the vinegar added.... then again, sometimes pets have weird appetites.

but poison them, no.
