What Are Beneficial Insects?
Beneficial insects are a variety of insects that perform services like pollination and pest control. Having beneficial insects in your garden or greenhouse acts as an all-natural pest control strategy and eliminates the need for harsh, unnecessary chemicals and pesticides while maintaining the ecological balance within the environment.
Beneficial Insects In The Garden And The Greenhouse: The First Line of Defense
Whether you are cultivating in an open field, hydroponic greenhouse, or a personal garden in your backyard, all plants can fall prey to a variety of pests that can threaten your crop. All pose a serious threat to whatever species you plant and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
This predatory mite attacks all sorts of critters that may feed on your plants, like fungus gnats, spider mites, root aphids and root-eating nematodes, as well as thrips. Just the mere presence of these beneficial mites in vermicastings will greatly reduce the cost of your pest management programs.
Thrips, also known as thunder flies, in particular, like to dine on a wide range of plants, draining them of vital cells and then moving on to their next victim. They also transmit plant-borne viruses on occasion, making them a double threat.
