Some insects are beneficial-they eat other bugs. Insects such as the praying mantis, lady bug, green lacewing larvae, and mud daubers eat other pesky insects and garden pests. Allowing these natural born killers to thrive in a chemical free environment is the best way to manage pest insects and mites.  Using their natural enemies against them is one of the oldest and most successful methods of eco friendly pest control known and utilized by man. Beneficial insects are harmless to people, plants, and animals. They are born to hunt, capture, and consume your pest insects!
