Not all insects are troublesome, venomous, biting foes to humanity - many are actually very helpful to our very existence as well as the earth's ecosystem.

Insects that can be considered helpful are those that accomplish something positive for the ecosystem or people such as (but not limited to) getting rid of decaying plant matter or dead animals, neutralizing pest species (which can promote garden health), production og useful / edible byproducts for human use / consumption (beeswax, honey) or general insect / small animal population control. The insect world is one of many moving parts that include both helpful and harmful species - with every bug playing its own role in some way.
