Beneficial Insects - Predators & Parasites

Natural Pest Control for Gardens, Greenhouses & Farms Using Beneficial Insects from ARBICO Organics.
Beneficial insects are used to control pest insects in an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. An IPM program has four components: the judicious use of chemicals, the use of traps to monitor and capture pest insects in their adult stage, management and cultural techniques to improve the overall status of the situation, and the use of beneficial insects to kill pest insects in their early developmental stages.

Green Lacewing Beneficial InsectsBeneficial insects do not harm people, plants, or pets. For maximum effectiveness, they should be released when pest densities are low to medium. Keep in mind that beneficials are not pesticides and they are not a miracle cure. Just as it takes a long time for pest problems to evolve, it also takes time before beneficials can resolve them. A little patience pays off!

All beneficial insects are sent with release instructions and recommendations to maximize their effectiveness. An ARBICO consultant can help you select and utilize your beneficials via phone, FAX, or letter, or on site when appropriate.
