Beneficial Insects in the Lawn

Do you remember the last time you really took notice of the insects that call your yard home? Chances are, it was around the same time that you noticed the ugly dead spot in the grass, or the chewed-up leaves of your shrubs. Many people don’t take notice of insects until there’s a problem. While there are some pest insects that can wreak havoc in your yard, most insects are actually beneficial.

There are several things that you can do to make your lawn a more attractive and safer place for beneficial insects and other natural enemies.

If you have questions about this, or any pesticide-related topic, please call NPIC at 1-800-858-7378 (8:00am - 12:00pm PST), or email at npic@ace.orst.edu.
