Soybean Beneficial Insects
Beneficial insects are characterized as insects that destroy or feed on pest insects. They can limit or even prevent pest populations from becoming a problem on plants. Beneficial insects are typically placed in two categories: predators and parasitoids. Predators feed directly on pest species and parasitoids develop in or on pests.
