Bees pollinate flowers, which then produce the fruits, vegetables, and grains we eat. Ants, flies, and beetles are part of nature's cleanup crew. Spiders and predatory insects keep pest populations in check.

Ladybugs or ladybird beetles like the one in this drawing guide also serve a key role that benefits us.

They love to eat aphids, tiny green insects that are harmful to plants. Having ladybugs in your garden helps maintain a healthy balance.
