While the arrival of spring brings great excitement, if you’re like many people, you probably aren’t relishing the thought of dealing with another season filled with insect problems. However, before you decide to get rid of all of them that are bugging you, it’s important to know which ones are beneficial, which ones are harmful, and which ones simply need to be controlled appropriately.

Beneficial Insects

When you think of beneficial insects, you probably think of some species of spiders, and ladybugs. These insects are important for the environment because they help to keep the insect population under control. Honey bees are equally important because they help you maintain your beautiful flower garden.

Harmful Insects

Harmful or annoying insects include wasps, mosquitoes, house flies, fruit flies and cockroaches. Although even some of the most harmful ones have their benefits. Wasps can help to keep the bug population under control around that vegetable garden you love so much in your back yard. While mosquitoes are a real nuisance at times, only the female mosquitoes bite. Male mosquitoes actually help bees with the pollination process. They also serve as food for bats and swallows, which are an important part of the ecosystem.
