Most bugs are unwelcome in homes and in yards. In large numbers, many bugs invade food supplies and pose health risks. However, some may also provide one or more benefits. Here are a few examples.
When you see spiders in your home, it is usually a sign that there are other bugs as well. Spiders feed off of flies, ants, small beetles and a variety of other problematic bugs. If spiders are in your home, you may still want them removed for your own peace of mind. Spiders can be beneficial outdoors. Unless a spider in your yard or garden is dangerous, it is best to leave it alone. Call a professional to help you identify a spider.
These elongated black beetle-like pests look intimidating. Earwigs are known for eating other pests, their eggs and their larvae. When you see more than one in your home in a short period of time, it is usually a sign that there are other pests present for them to eat. They can become a nuisance in large numbers but do not pose any notable health risks.
There are many different types of wasps. The paper wasp is known for eating several insects that are otherwise considered pests. There are a few other types of wasps that eat destructive bugs and can contribute to a flourishing garden or yard. However, wasps also sting. In some instance, people have allergic reactions to the stings. When you have a wasp problem, it is important to remove the infestation to avoid repeated stings.
