This is not about “good” and “bad” bugs. It’s about taking a close look at your garden and all of the fascinating creatures living in it. Predator and prey insects will usually find a balance if you let them. Plant a variety of flowers and vegetables and get to know your insects, and you’ll rarely need to spray.
