Good capture! I believe that the lacewings are the best beneficial insect for most people’s gardens and landscapes. The larvae eat almost any kind of insect and you can buy the lacewing as eggs so they begin searching wherever you place them. Nobody likes to spray pesticides on the food they’re growing, so I’ve built a web site with info on them and other beneficials at http://www.BetterBugs.com to help people learn how to use these good bugs. I have quite a few photos of lacewings and other bugs there as well. Another big benefit of using a predator instead of an insecticide is that it allows all the beneficial insects that are already present in your garden to keep working on the pest insect complex.
