Insects Aren’t Always The Enemy

by admin December 01, 2016

I recently read one article about how scientists are using tiny insects to control an invasive weed.

In Rio Grande Texas, scientists used arundo gall wasps (Tetramesa romana) and arundo scale insects (Rhizaspidiotus donacis) to control the spread of a weed known as “carrizo cane” and “Spanish reed”. The weed is known to clog streams and other irrigation channels and inhibit natural vegetation, affecting wildlife and flood control.

So insects do have their purpose but they also have their place, and that’s not in our homes. The most effective way of keeping insects out of your home naturally, is by having your windows and doors covered with insect screens.
