i believe this is great that this article might open some people's eyes to the complex web of life all over the planet in all areas, and maybe people will stop jumping out ahead of nature and destroying things that are helpful.
i know myself in the past i have gotten overwhelmed with the enormous amount of pests that can overrun when things get out of balance..ex. the 2009 tent worm infestation in Michigan..which was horrible..defoliating over 50 % of the trees in the state..
this spring there was a huge outbreak of these big flies that looked like houseflies..they were feeding on the young tentworms that were coming out..
there were a LOT of tent worms, but not as many as there were the year before, but there were a LOT of flies..
now the flies are gone and the tent worms are gone for the season, it will be interesting to observe next May what kind of balance they have achieved
