Lacewings, despite their delicate appearance, are an even match with ladybugs for their voracious appetite for aphids. They are seen often hanging out in the same places, but never seem to conflict with them.

They at times can be a pest in their own right as they lay their eggs under the bark of downed trees, and sometimes get brought in with the firewood. They hatch out in the warmth and become a nuisance indoors by flying into your face.
