Biological pest controls are naturally occurring beneficial insects!
Biological pest control is not a new concept!
It is a natural process that has been going on since insects first appeared on earth. It is happening all around us, in our gardens, in hedgerows, in forests and even in our own houses.
Each of our biological controls is a beneficial insect, these are naturally occurring parasites and predators and they are specific to the pest that they control, they are harmless to children, pets and wildlife. Click on any of the controls from the list on the right hand side of this page to find out more.
For each biological control we have provided details of it's description, it's life cycle and it's usage, there are also miniature pictures which will enlarge to full screen, if you'd like to take a closer look, simply click on any of them.
To make it easier for you to navigate through the biological controls, the list on the right hand side will appear on each solution page, along with a link to the pest that is controlled.
