Beneficial insect

For most people, when they think of insects, they think of pests such as mosquitoes or tomato worms. However there are more beneficial insects than pests, and without them the human race could not survive.

Two broad categories of benefial insects are pollinators and biological pest control agents.

Increasingly certain species of insects are managed and used to intervene where natural pollination or biological control is insufficent, usually due to human disturbance of the balance of nature.
