9). Human habitations also support various species of cockroaches, silverfish, moths, beetles, flies, ants, and other insects, as well as mites, that feed on clothing, wood, or stored products, or on human debris. Cockroaches, filth flies, and ants spread human disease organisms while crawling from unsanitary refuges to unsealed food or cooking utensils, requiring proper sanitation to avoid illness, but are not specific vectors of disease (Clausen 1954). These insects also can trigger allergies and asthma among humans in close association (Curtis and Davies 2001).

Clearly, understanding how insects affect ecosystems is critical to our approaches to managing ecosystems in a way that promotes sustainability of resources and services. How we deal with insects, as much as how we manage ecosystems, will determine the capacity of ecosystems to supply those services into the future. © 2008 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC Introduction 15 Sustainability of ecosystem services is possible only if we protect the ecosystem processes that control their supply. The goal of sustainability is a consistent rate of production or supply of ecosystem services, not a maximum rate that cannot be sustained under changing environmental conditions.
