Brown lacewing

Scientific name:
(Neuroptera: Hemerobiidae)

Facts: While they are in different Families, brown lacewings and green lacewings have similar habits. Adults feed on pollen, nectar and honeydew and can also feed on aphids, spider mites or other prey. The larvae are voracious predators and can feed on any insect that is small enough. Brown lacewings are especially good at eating aphids.
