Do you recognize this one? I saw this insect at a couple of tree farms during the last week of May and first week of June. This is an immature ladybug a.k.a. Ladybird beetle. The ladybug larvae, like the adult beetles they become, are voracious eaters of aphids and other insects.
There are many other beneficial creatures, which feed on pests in tree farms and often go unnoticed. These include “good” mites, various predatory and parasitic insects, spiders and even birds. By keeping pesticide applications to a minimum the populations of the beneficial partners are maintained and nature can do its good work without us even knowing it.
