I like insects, as long as they don't fuck up the things I'm growing, which is generally what happens. Flies ruin raspberries and figs, birds eat my strawberries. Small caterpillars nest in my hops... Spiders everywhere. Very nice those insects, not. I don't use any pesticides, haven't used any for over a decade. I try to plant things that solve my problems.. Like when I used to have a lice problem every year in my willow trees. I made some small insect houses that ladybugs like to live in, small wooden boxes with lots of openings in them, filled up with dead leaf. Since then, the problem is manageable.
