Bear in mind that beneficial predators need food sources, meaning you need to keep feeding them pests.  Beneficial predators follow and/or seek food sources. If you do not have bugs, they will not stay.That being said, consider a bat house (one bat consumes thousands of bugs each night). Purple martin birds do the same. Of course, attracting crop-eating birds isn’t swift.
