Beneficial Insects - Great Lakes Region
Help protect our beneficial insects! Please post your photos of beneficial insects - this can also include pollinators, with a description of each insect and note why they are considered to be beneficial. If possible please note the plant species the insect was spotted on. * A description can be helpful because in certain instances, insects within the same Family have both pest species and beneficial species, such as Pentatomidae - Stink Bugs.
