Friend or Foe? Insects and Plants
Sometimes we automatically assume all insects in the garden must be bad. But this is not true. Nature works in amazing ways, and some insects actually help control pests. Helpful insects can limit pest populations by either parasitizing or preying on them -- how cool is that! So gardeners need to recognize insect friends as well as foes. This Insects and Plants page was developed for kids, but it packs a lot of information and illustrations of the good guys into a small space.
