Nader’s Pest Raiders Shares Their Top Five Most Lovable Bugs

Jacksonville -- Every February as Valentine’s Day draws near, romance fills the air and we are reminded to show our love and appreciation for those we hold dear. Nader’s Pest Raiders, a local pest and termite control company wants you to save some of that love for a few special insects that are cute, romantic and are even quite beneficial!

“While our primary focus is protecting our customers from the very real threats that pests pose to both health and property,” said Charlie Jones, Nader’s Pest Expert, “it is important to remember that there are many beneficial insects that improve our quality of life as well.”

1. Ladybugs: A perennial favorite, Ladybugs again top the list. Not only are these insects adorable and thought to bring good luck, they provide a sustainable solution to keeping real pests out of your garden since they feed on aphids which are known to harm pests.
2. Fireflies: Fireflies are the ultimate love bug, using their soft glow like candlelight to attract new mates and what could be more romantic than collecting them on a warm summer night. Fireflies are usually found in humid climates, especially near ponds, streams and marshes.
3. Dragonflies: This beautiful four-winged flyer deserves a lot of love, especially if you don’t like mosquitoes! Dragonflies have been around since dinosaurs roamed the earth and they feed on mosquitoes helping to control the local population. Mother Nature definitely got this one right!
4. Crickets: Crickets might well be the most romantic insect on our list. Only male crickets chirp and in their quest to the perfect mate, they produce an orchestra of romantic ballads to woo female crickets and repel other males. Additionally, after a successful mating, they will chirp a song of celebration.
5. Honeybees: There are many reasons to love this beneficial bug. Honeybees are social in nature and produce a yummy sweet treat we all enjoy! Additionally, they pollinate beautiful flowers, many that are given at Valentine’s Day and more than 100 different crops across the United States, including apples, squash, soybeans and nuts.
