Pest Of The Week: The Green Lacewing
This weekâ€™s pest of the week is not actually a pest at all, but a very beneficial insect. The green lacewing is an all natural exterminator that feeds on garden pests like mites, aphids, and lace bugs; exterminating as many as 100 a week. In addition, these beautiful flying insects also feed on plant nectar, pollen, and honeydew. Gardeners prefer green lacewings because they offer a safe, non-chemical alternative for naturally controlling garden and plant pests.
Green lacewings are usually bright green to greenish-brown in color, with compound eyes that are noticeably golden in most species. The wings of the green lacewing are translucent, with a slight iridescence. Some may have green wing veins, or a cloudy brownish wing pattern. These insects are also nocturnal; extremely active at night.
