They're called soldier beetles because some varieties have color combinations which resemble British soldier uniforms.
Not only do soldier beetles eat garden pests but they also pollinate flowers nearly as well as bees do.
Plant lots of marigold, daisy, and goldenrod to draw the friendly soldier beetles into your garden!
