What Are Beneficial Species?

Honey Bees are beneficial insectBeneficial Insects - Honey Bee

Some of these pests, like the honey bee for example are very important to us, the planet and your local ecosystem, if we were to lose them it could have a devastating effect on our agricultural production of both food and feed. Not just honey bees but all species of bees and wasps are beneficial, some species pollinate certain plants and flowers that other species do not have the same selective pollen tastes. There are other beneficial insects like the Lady Bug that feed on invasive plant eating insects such as Aphids.

Bats are another beneficial species that can be very important to your local ecosystem, eating insects and Mosquitoes in large numbers and providing a great form of natural pest control. Bats can pose serious health risks and transmit disease to humans so consult a trained bat control specialist before attempting and bat removal, bat exclusion or bat relocation programs. ICU Pest Control also offers a wide range of custom bat boxes to help relocate or attract a colony to a safe location where both human and bat can live without contact.
