Beneficial Insects in the Home, Yard and Garden
Beverly Sparks, Extension Entomologist
Beneficial insects are those which are helpful to us in some way. These include well-known flower pollinators such as bees and butterflies, and those which are natural enemies of insects we consider pests. The purposeful use of an insect to suppress other insects is one type of biological control and dates back at least to the fourth century A.D. when ants were manipulated to control citrus pests in China. Insect predators, in the immature and often adult stages, feed directly on their prey, killing them immediately. Examples of predator species are the praying mantis and the ladybug (lady beetles). Other insects parasitize their hosts by depositing eggs on or in them. Larvae emerging from the eggs typically develop within and emerge from the host. Parasitized insects usually continue to feed for a time before they die. Examples of insect natural enemies which parasitize pest species include many tiny wasps and flies. Natural enemies are an important component of integrated pest management programs. For example, in home flower and vegetable gardens adult and immature lady beetles can quickly reduce a population of aphids thus eliminating the need to apply a chemical spray. Suppression of pests by beneficial insects alone, however, can be variable. When pest populations are large and there is enough food and the proper habitat to support the growth and reproduction of natural enemies, the impact of beneficials on pest populations can be greater. When pest populations are low, beneficials will search elsewhere for a food source. Beneficial insects tend not to recover as quickly from exposure to insecticides as pest species do.

Mantid Fly, Climaciella brunnea (Say). The larvae of most mantidflies are parasities of ground spiders and their eggs. MAYFLIES These "fish flies" become abundant in mid June and gather in huge swarms along the lake shoreline. more DRAGONFLIES and DAMSELFLIES Dragonflies and damselflies include typical Carolinian species such as the Black Saddlebags, Tramea lacerata and Blue Dasher, Pachydiplax longipennis . Over 60 photos of these insects are available at Odonata of Ontario more BUGS Although all insects are "bugs" to most people the insects belonging to the order Hemiptera are the "true" bugs of the insect world. Bugs are one of the larger insect orders with a wide variety of terrestrial and aquatic species, plant feeders, predators, and even blood suckers. A few examples from Ojibway include stink bugs, seed bugs, lace bugs, ambush bugs, assasin bugs, water striders, water boatman, backswimmers and waterscorpions

A Day in the. Life of 4 insects. instructor. This webquest is a comparison of four different insects bee, ladybug, ant, and cockroach.
A Day in the Life of 4 Insects Teacher Notes Activity O verview This unit was developed at an Indiana University course, Children and Electronic Media , June 1997, Jackie Carrigan, instructor. This webquest is a comparison of four different insects: bee, ladybug, ant, and cockroach. Children will be asked to explore the habitat, eating habits, and physical characteristics of their assigned insect. C ontent A reas and G rades This webquest is anchored in primary grades (K-3) and ties in with the Science and Geography Curriculum. Reading can also be incorporated into the unit, depending on grade level. C urriculum S tandards The following objectives will be taught:
  • Students will learn the differences and likenesses between insects.
  • Students will understand what the lifestyle of an insect is like.
  • Students will learn where these insects live and how they adapt to their environment.
  • Students will be able to create their own insect tall tale.
  • Students will be able to illustrate their insect.
Students will use higher level thinking and multiple intelligences (analytical, inter-personal, verbal linguistic, and logical mathematical) to satisfy the above objectives. Students will think critically about their insects and creatively produce illustrations and stories based on their findings. R equired S kills and K nowledge Teachers will need knowledge of the Internet and using a web browser. The unit is easy for a beginning teacher to adapt into their curriculum. Early primary teachers will need to be more of a leader since students will not have advanced reading skills, while primary teachers will act mostly as a facilitator.

insects, page 1, Ancient insects. insects have been here since early dinosaur days and have been flying for a long time even before some birds could fly.
Insects page 1 What is an Insect? All around us there are tiny animals called insects. Scientists find so many new insects every year that they are amazed! Dragonfly Insects have 3 main body parts. Those parts are called the head, the thorax ( chest area) and the abdomen( the tail end). The head has a pair of feelers or antennae on the front of it. The thorax has 6 legs connected to it for moving and also, a pair of wings for flying. Inside the thorax , there are lots of muscles to help the legs and wings to work. Parts of an insect Insects wings are very thin so the poor insect must beat (or flap) their wings very fast so that they can really take off to fly. Insects can twist and turn their wings which helps them to stay in one spot ( hover) up in the air or even fly backwards. Insects fly for many reasons. Sometimes they need to get away from a creature that wants to eat them, to find better food, or to find an insect to mate with. Butterflies and Moths Many insects such as the Butterfly and the Moth go through 4 stages of growing. They go from being an egg (egg) to being like a worm (larva) then go to a homemade sleeping bag (pupa) where the insect takes a nap. Finally the new insect will break out of their sleeping bag(pupa) and is now an adult insect. Butterfly wings can have tiny dust on it but that helps them to have pretty colors and patterns on their wings.

A Guide to the Stick Insects of Australia
By Peter Miller
Podacanthus wilkinsoni
nymph This web site provides a Field Guide to the Stick Insects of Australia. (Or it will, once it is finished.) It is useful to amateurs and professionals alike in identifying Australian stick insects. Of course, as a field guide, it leaves a little to be desired, because the Internet is particularly hard to reach while in the field, desktop computers are usually impractical in the field, and even when using this web as a CD-Rom on a laptop, it weighs far too much. It is my intention, once the research is complete, is to publish this information as book, if this is economically feasible. By making the information available as a web site, it is available earlier and it may be reviewed and critiqued and improved long before it reaches print.
The information is arranged in much the same way as you will find in field guides on other subjects, such as birds or wild-flowers, or whatever.
The Stick Insects
There is information on each species, including photographs and distribution maps whenever possible; and like most field guides it occupies the bulk of the work and is of least immediate value in figuring out what it is that you are looking at. The stick insects are presented in scientific taxonomic order, as is usual for field guides, but unless you are simply browsing, I suggest you use one of the indexes or keys to find what you are looking for.

The Topic insects. Easier insects covering. insects do not have a backbone. Most have one or two pair of wings and a pair of antennae. Harder
The Topic:
Insects Easier - Insects are small creatures (animal kingdom) with three pair of legs, a body with three main sections, and tough shell-like outer covering. Insects do not have a backbone. Most have one or two pair of wings and a pair of antennae. Harder - Insects first appeared on earth at least 400 million years ago. Today, they live almost everywhere, from steamy tropical jungles to cold polar regions. Entomologists (scientists who study insects) estimate that the average number of insects for each square mile (2.6 square kilometers) of land equals the total number of people on the earth. Scientists have identified and named more than 11/2 million species of animals. Of these, about 1 million are insects. Entomologists discover from 7,000 to 10,000 new species of insects each year. Some believe there may be from 1 million to 10 million species still undiscovered. In the world of entomology, there are still vast frontiers of knowledge still to be discovered. All insects have three pairs of legs, a body divided into three main parts (head, thorax, and abdomen) and an exoskeleton. The insect's muscles are attached to the inside wall of the exoskeleton. The exoskeleton does not grow with an insect; therefore in time, the exoskeleton becomes too tight and must be shed in a process is called molting. Most adult insects have two large compound eyes, made up of separate, sometimes thousands of lenses. Insects are the only animals besides birds and bats to have wings. Most adult insects have two (flies) or four wings (wasps). Their sense of smell is located chiefly in the antennae. A few insects, like ants, bees, and wasps, also have taste organs on their antennae.

Feeder Insects Cockroaches Mantids Phasmids ... Other Insects Most herpetoculturists deal with crickets, mealworms and roaches in order to feed their reptiles or amphibians. Other species of insects are becoming more popular as pets in and of themselves, due to their bright colors and strange shapes. The links in this section focus on those species kept as pets or feeder species throughout the world. Other insect links are included because they provide interesting educational material on various aspects of entomology. General Insect Links: Insect Zoos: Scientific Insect Links: Photos: Stock

152. Nematodes As Biological Control Agents Of Insects
Information on how entomopathogenic nematodes can be used as biological agents of insects and the taxonomy and systematics of these nematodes.
Nematodes as Biological Control Agents of Insects Nematodes are one of the most abundant groups of living animals, and although morphologically they are very simple, they have exploited a wide range of diverse habitats including invertebrates. Nematodes are usually considered pests because of the diseases they cause in humans and animals and the economic impact they have on many agricultural products . There are, however, a small but significant number of beneficial entomogenous nematodes, i.e., nematodes associated (often parasitically) with insects. In addition to insects, nematodes can parasitize spiders, leeches, annelids, crustaceans and mollusks. Some of these entomopathogenic (insect-parasitic) nematodes are of considerable interest because of their potential as biological control agents of pest insects. If the nematode attacks an insect pest ; kills or hampers the development of the insect host; and is capable of mass production it can be used as an effective biological control agent.
Nine families of nematodes (Allantone-matidae, Diplogasteridae

153. Origami Insects
Origami insects and Their Kin by Robert Lang. Welcome to the Origami insects page! Here you will see showcased some of the models
Welcome to the Origami Insects page! Here you will see showcased some of the models from Robert Lang's wonderful and complex book, Origami Insects and Their Kin (ISBN 0486286029). I folded these models from 12-inch or 15-inch squares; don't try anything smaller! Each takes over an hour to fold, and some can take as long as four or five hours to create. The models in this book are extremely difficult, even for an advanced paperfolder. I would recommend this book only if you are ready for a very difficult origami challenge! . If you would like to get this book, there are a number of places on the Web from which you can mail-order it. Most places have it for about $10 US. It is available at Fascinating Folds and , as well as many other bookstores. Enjoy! The treehopper hides from predators by mimicking a thorn. The spotted ladybug is recognizable by its distinctive spotted pattern and feeds chiefly on aphids and other small insects. Often thought to be dangerous, the bite of the tarantula is painful but not highly venomous.

Nontoxic home remedies for insects and other pests.
Home Brewed Pest Control
There are many ways to reduce pesticide use in the home and garden. From home mixtures to introducing beneficial species, all is possible for the home gardener. This brochure will concentrate on non-toxic home remedies for insects and other pests. It will also provide pointers for those who wish to access more advanced information about species introduction or other forms of non-toxic pesticide control. Spray bottle cures: Non-toxic pesticide sprays that can be made from ingredients readily available in the home. Recipe
All-purpose- Take an empty spray bottle and fill about 3/4 of the way with water, then add a few drops of Ivory liquid soap, some hot peppers or hot pepper sauce and some garlic. This works well, but needs to be reapplied after a storm and every couple of weeks. Recipe
All-purpose- Grind together three hot peppers. three large onions and one whole bunch of garlic. Cover mash with water and place in a covered container. Let container stand over night. Strain mixture through cheesecloth or a fine strainer and add enough water to make a gallon of spray. Recipe
All-purpose- Mix 2 1/2 tablespoons of a mild dish washing detergent plus the same amount of a vegetable cooking oil with one gallon of water. This can be sprayed on all plants. Remember to spray both the top and the underside of the leaves.
