Fighting Pests with Beneficial Insects

Gardening season is under way.

Unfortunately, it’s also that time of year when the annoying pests and rodents return to your garden to scavenge for food and shelter. If you want to grow healthy fruits and vegetables without having to use chemical pesticide then consider using a method called biological control.

This is when you control pests with other living organisms.

There are plenty of beneficial insects out there in the world today that can do the job of eradicating common garden pests like caterpillars, aphids, and thrips. The use of beneficial insects can also be sustainable in the long-term as long as there is a source of food for the insects to feed on.

In the following infographic by Organic Lesson, you can learn about seven beneficial insects, what they prey on, and what kind of habitat and plants they are attracted to.
