FAQ's - Insect Pests
Insects are the most successful group of animals in the world. They are extremely adaptable and inhabit a wide range of habitats from deserts to the Arctic. The vast majority of insects are harmless (benign) or beneficial. They pollinate crops, provide food for animals such as birds and fish, and produce products such as honey, wax, and silk. Some prey on, or parasitize, pest insects. Less than 1 percent of insects are considered pests.
