Pollinators and Beneficial Insects

There are over a million described species of insects in the world with many yet to be discovered. Usually the first thought when seeing an unknown insect in the garden is "oh no" when in reality only 5% of all insects are harmful in some way. A vast majority are helpful or simply exist causing no harm. It's important to encourage these helpful insects in our area.
