I love vegetable gardening. The challenge and rewards of growing your own food is such a wonderful experience that I believe everyone should at least, give it a go for one season in their lives. Part of the great wonder and experience in vegetable gardening are the various insects that you will come across.

There are bugs that will love to eat your plants and there are bugs that love to eat those bugs that love to eat your plants. The former are bad and the latter are referred to as beneficial insects.

The beneficial insects are the ones that you are trying to get the most of in your garden. They do no harm (or in rare cases, very little harm) to your vegetables, fruits and herbs. The more beneficial insects that you have, the less "bad" population you will see.
