What farm insects are useful?
One such helpful insect is the ladybug. Farmers release ladybugs on their crops (or grow plants that naturally attract ladybugs), and these insects eat devastating pests like ants, aphids, mites, and flies. In fact, the reason we have grapefruits, oranges, lemons, and limes today has a lot to do with ladybugs.
