  5. 5. BENEFICIAL INSECTS TO CONSIDERSo, which insects are going to be right to meet your needs? Itdepends a bit on what you’re dealing with and what you mightbe dealing with. Some of the most popular choices includeGreen Lacewings, Praying Mantis, Ladybugs, Nematodes, andMinute Pirate Bugs.
  6. 6. GREEN LACEWINGS TO THE RESCUEOnce they becomeadults, you’ll find themeating all of the finer thingsin life like pollen andnectar, but as larvae, they’reserious predators, and yourgarden could use their help.They can eat aphids by thedozen because they’re veryhungry absolutely all of thetime. http://www.slugabug.com
  7. 7. PRAYING MANTIS These guys are your rescue team unlike any other because they’re big enough to eat almost anything that comes their way. They’re going to blend in very well with the rest of your garden, but they’re predators of the worst kind. They’re just as likely to devour those ladybugs you ordered as they are to gobble up those caterpillars, so make certain you know what you’re getting into with this order. http://www.slugabug.com
  8. 8. NEMATODESAlso known as roundworms, these colorless worms are a greatway to get rid of almost any pest you’re fighting. They canmanage infestations that many other pest control methodssimply can’t, and whether you need to fight tomato hornwormsor root maggots, these are the ones you want to consider.
  9. 9. LADYBUGSAphids are easily one of the single mostcommon garden pests out there, andwhether you have tomatoes you’retrying to take care of or gorgeousdecorative plants, the aphids willconsume them. Ladybugs, though, canhelp.Historically, ladybugs have been a signof good luck, and that’s certainly truein your garden. They can eat up to athousand aphids a day, which means agreat harvest for you.
  10. 10. MINUTE PIRATE BUGSThey’re awfully tiny, but these are going to be able to protectyour treasure unlike many other choices out there. They will eataphids, mites, and thrips, and it’s possible they’re already inyour garden right now, but you’d need a magnifying glass to seethem. http://www.slugabug.com
