The purpose of these guidelines is to provide recommendations to farmers, conservation districts, USDA Natural Resources Service (NRCS) field office staff, and other agricultural professionals, when designing and installing habitat features for beneficial insects, those that prey on or parasitize crop pests. Beneficial insects can help suppress populations of pest species, reducing crop damage and reducing the need for insecticides.
