This is a beneficial insect because the larvae and adults eat aphids, mites & thrips. These can also be purchased if you want more.

This is a not only a 'good' bug for the garden, but is also a 'safe' bug to handle- can't bite through finger skin, and is a very slow flier. You will often find them flying about your front door light at night in the summers. They have very fine, nearly see-through lacey wings.

"Chrysoperla carnea does not occur in North America. It is a European member of a sibling species complex that contains several other species in North America. Some of the members of this complex are only differentiable on the basis of 'songs' (abdominal tremulation patterns), and are not distinguishable on any known morphological grounds." (Dr. J.D. Oswald) ref: http://bugguide.net/node/view/32027
