6 Beneficial Insects you Should Not Kill
Why: Honey bees are one of the most valuable bugs in our ecosystem. In order to survive they must collect nectar and pollen, as they do this they pollinate flowers and crop. A single honey bee can pollinate 50-100 flowers in a single day. They’re also the only insect to create a food consumed by humans. If you have a honeybee problem near your home or business, Richmond Pest Control works with local beekeepers to adopt and protect your unwanted bees.
Why: These harmless insects will do wonders to protect your garden from mites, fruit flies and many other damaging insects.
Why: Another helpful bug for avid gardeners, a single praying mantis can help control the insect population of a medium-size garden.
Why: Not only are butterflies beautiful to admire on a gorgeous spring day, they also help to pollinate the plants and flowers in your yard.
Why: Dragonflies have a large appetite and vast taste for other insects. Most importantly, they devour all of these pesky mosquitoes ruining your outdoor living space.
Why: While some spiders, mainly the brown recluse and black widows, are harmful to humans the vast majority of spiders pose no threat. Common household spiders actually feed on other insects and control the pest population in the darkest corners of your home. However, if you find an overwhelming amount of spiders in your home, call for our pest control services to have them safely extracted.
