Insects and Animals Who Provide Natural Pest Control

Written by BooAdmin on . Posted in Tips

While many insect types you might notice in or around your property are considered pests that pose potential negative outcomes, there are also several insects that, as part of the natural ecosystem, actually help control the population of common pests.

At Bug Busters, while we certainly won’t go so far as to recommend this sort of testing on your property, we do think it pays for homeowners to be …
