Handling pests is one of many battles that gardeners have to face on a day-to-day basis. Having a few garden pests does not hurt but if you let the population grow out of control then that may lead to all sorts of damage to your precious plants. One natural method that can help prevent a pest outbreak is by introducing beneficial insects.
This is the act of introducing insect predators that prey on the garden pests. Some of these insects, such as spiders and praying mantis, you may have already heard of.
