Before you squish that bug, take a closer look. All insects may seem like pests but many insects can actually control the population of pests that would otherwise happily chow down on your garden. Some help to pollinate, others are predators of garden munching pests and some are parasites that use these pests as nurseries for their offspring. Making your garden open and inviting to these beneficial ‘pests’ can save your garden from disaster and remove the need for chemical insecticides.
