Beneficial Insects – The Greater Austin Area

Austin Area Pests | September 10, 2019

Learn more about green pest control and beneficial insects

Nature tends to find a balance between pests and beneficial organisms. That balance keeps populations in check, but sometimes the whole system gets a bit out of whack. From Georgetown through Kyle our region is abundant with a variety of beautiful beneficial insects. Some of those are pollinators, such as the bees. Others are predators that prey on pest insects. Ladybugs and praying mantis are two predators that help out around yards and in gardens.

Natures Balance

What happens when the pest insects take over and health of your garden or yard is in question? Many people turn to pesticides to kill off the pests. Over the counter pesticides take otherwise innocent beneficial insects with the pests. DIY pesticides are often more potent than our professionally mixed & applied commercial products.

Knowing When To Use Pesticides

One key aspect of using a pest control service is that we can identify the pest causing the damage and then apply pest control solutions that target that pest. A good example of this is found with hemipterans – Stink bugs and their relatives. Hemipterans are plant sapsuckers, and while contact pesticides work, they also kill off bees and other beneficial insects. A better approach is to use a systemic pesticide. These are watered into the ground, and the plants take them up. When the hemipteran drinks the plant sap, it dies thanks to the toxins. Not all pesticides are suitable for plants that are for food. We offer a selection of green pest control options and can recommend more organic means of killing pests on food-producing plants.
