An expert from Charles Darwin University, who is also an organiser of the Darwin Insect Festival Sarah Bonney says having a choice selection of insects around your home can work to your benefit.
She explains that insects have a crucial role to play, keeping the soil healthy and helping the environment, creating food for us.
She says having some spiders in our homes serve the purpose of controlling other insect populations.
Flies, while they are a menace inside the home, in the garden have an important function, breaking down fecal matter.
The key is keeping out the bad insects, that are dangerous to your family. That is why you need insect screens in place.
