Helpful Insects

Although some species of insects can be harmful, many are actually beneficial to mankind. Insects such as dragonflies, ladybugs and mosquito hawks eat less desirable insects like mosquitoes and aphids, keeping the pesky populations under control. Although their vicious sting has given them a bad reputation, bees supply us with honey and wax and are responsible for pollinating many of the flower that give us the fruits we eat.
