Lesson Nine

Biological Pest Control 9-8 

Other Beneficial Insects

Two other insects that are always considered beneficial
are ladybugs and lacewings. Both are predators, known
for their voracious appetites and broad diet of insects.
Both of these predators will help control almost every pest
insect that we have discussed with the exclusion of the
beet armyworm.


Ladybug consuming aphids

Both the ladybug and lacewing actively feed and consume 
problem pests in the larval stage as well as the adult stage.

Ladybugs and lacewings are a welcome addition to any
garden, farm or greenhouse.
