Misc. Insects

Beetles are the group of insects with the largest number of known species. About 40% of all described insect species are beetles and new species are frequently discovered. Beetles can be found in almost all habitats but are not known to occur in the sea or the polar regions. They often feed on plants and fungi, break down animal and plant debris, and eat other invertebrates. Some species are the prey of various animals including birds and mammals. Certain species are agricultural pests, while other species of beetles are important controls of agricultural pests. 

Non-biting flies are one of the most important pest groups because they are not only nuisance pests, but many are also important in disease transmission. Flies feed on a variety of food materials but most of those of structural importance develop in either fermenting or decaying organic matter, although a few are parasitic on other animals. Fly control is often quite challenging because their larval developmental site(s) must usually be located and eliminated for success, and these sites may be some distance from where the adults are nuisances.
