Answer: Beneficial insects, the good guys in the garden, typically feed upon the more destructive garden pests. Lady bugs, lacewings and praying mantids top the list of good guys. They are fascinating to watch, and children will enjoy seeing them in action. One caution, though - praying mantids will bite anything that moves, including a finger! The beneficial insects are available from Burpee. You can purchase by phoning toll free (800) 888-1447, or order online at: http://www.burpee.com.
