10. Ants: friends and enemies
Some clean the grass seeds they eat (Mexican ants), but others defend their colonies against aphids, even against natural predators. Their role is therefore ambiguous and differs according to the species with which we are dealing.
11. Constable: Friend
A certain type of bugs (also called bugs), the constable hunts only mites and other insects that hide on plants. From time to time, and in the absence of prey, it can take a little juice from the holly, but without harming it.
12. Geophile: Friend
Like a centipede, which the geologist is not far from, this vulnerable animal feeds on invertebrates from the soil. Therefore, it is in no way harmful to plants and, on the contrary, it participates in the life of the soil. It can be abundant.
13. Cricket: Friend
Bite into a few weeds, but mostly clean up old leaves from the green carpet. Its presence, indicated by a small hole, is discreet and can be felt more than seen. Like cricket, it only likes warm parts of the garden.
14. Woodlouse: Friend
Despite its suspicious behavior (it escapes if caught for fear of light), this crustacean only feeds on decomposing matter. It helps with composting.
15. Timarch: Neutral
With its wobbly gait, this large black beetle with copper highlights gives no assurance. The animal is harmless and feeds only on gallium, a plant from the booby family. It only harms weeds and weeds in particular.
