Woah, hold up there Mr. Flyswatter – it might be tempting to want to squash every bug that invades your Arkansas home or garden, but there are actually a few “pests” that are beneficial for your yard; but when it comes to the home, not so much.
If you have an ant problem in Little Rock, a cockroach infestation in Hot Springs or termites in Jacksonville get in touch with our team at Clark Exterminating and let us take care of your bug problem and help you take back your home! But for now, here are some bugs that actually might be worth attracting to your own personal great outdoors:
Our team at Clark Exterminating can help you get rid of spiders in your home, but as long as you keep them outside they can actually be very helpful. Spiders are known for eating a huge amount of insects – more than all other garden hunters combined. Most garden-variety spiders will keep their distance from humans and help protect your plants by keeping your yard pest-free.
Aphids are the bane of any gardener – from vegetables to leafy plants, aphids chow down on any and all types of plants in your yard. But did you know that the average adult ladybug can eat up to 100 aphids a day? Keep some of these insects around and your plants will be well protected from aphids year-round.
As you probably learned in school, bees take pollen from flower to flower and pollinate as they go. If you are trying to expand those flowers in your garden, bees are an essential part of their growth.
Earthworms are incredibly important to plant growth. As they burrow in the soil, they allow air in and loosen the ground so roots and water can spread where they need to go. They also naturally fertilize the soil, helping plants grow and help sustain bird populations.
See? Not all bugs are bad, and some can be very helpful when it comes to the health of your yard. However, if you have a bug problem in your house, it’s time to call the team at Clark Exterminating to set things straight!
