Good bugs

Bugs do a lot of good

Bugs are a good thing for your house and garden.  Just look at all the good things bugs do for us.  Spiders eat many of the bugs that we find pretty scary.

As much as we do not like to look at spiders they do a lot of good!  Every spider you leave alone in your house accounts for two thousand less bugs per spider.

In your garden spiders eat lots of bugs that damage your plants.

Seeing good bugs

Seeing a bug inside or outside your house may actually contribute to our health in a roundabout way.  Mounting evidence points to the fact that some of our modern ailments are connected with our lack of exposure to a wider biological diversity.

Bugs play a role in hosting and spreading that microbial diversity indoors.
