Beneficial Insects

  
WHY USE BENEFICIAL INSECTS?
People used to say”, the only good bug is a dead bug.” When they went into their garden, they used chemicals to kill anything that moved with the goal of making the area bug free.

Chemical pesticides are bad for us and bad for the environment. We can’t do that today because most of those chemicals have been found to be dangerous, either to us or to the environment, and have been taken off the market. But more important for our garden, we have found that a balance of bugs, both good and bad is much better than no bugs at all.

All pests have natural enemies
. Now we know that it is better to work with mother nature instead of against her. We know that almost all pests have natural enemies, which we usually call beneficial insects. Our role is to let them do their job and give them a little help when they need it. And the bad guys never build up a resistance to being eater!

A balance of good and bad bugs is natures way
. It’s actually good to have some pest bugs around because they are the food source that attracts and keeps the beneficial bugs in the garden. Keeping a balance of good and bad bugs is the way that nature bas been doing it for millions of years. When thing get out of balance and we see our roses being eaten by a hoard of aphids, we bring the balance back by introducing some Green Lacewings or ladybugs.
