Beneficial Insects Take A Bite Out Of Pests In The Florida Landscape

The State of Florida is currently experiencing the introduction of new harmful insects that specifically feed on plants and trees.

In an effort to reduce broad applications of dangerous insecticides, we are exploring the release of beneficial insects into the landscape.

We have consulted with the University of Florida and other colleagues particularly in Southern Florida to address a solution to our problem.

Lady bug beetles and green lace wings are thought to be beneficial insects that when introduced into the landscape can attack the harmful bugs and reduce their impact.

We have completed some small releases of lady bug beetles in controlled environments recently.

We will be monitoring those locations to see the effects and expand our understanding.
