Soil organisms such as beetles, earthworms, spiders, termites, and terrestrial crustaceans also contribute to agriculture. They do this by breaking down plant and animal organic residues and incorporating them into the soil profile, making nutrients bioavailable, increasing porosity, and allowing water to penetrate the soil. In addition, many organisms participate in biological control because they are predators, such as ladybugs, earwigs, and spiders.

by increasing the soil's porosity, the ability to infiltrate and retain water gets better.
When soil organisms decompose organic matter, they release carbon and nutrients.
through the decomposition of plant and animal organic residues and their incorporation into the soil profile.
When digging through the soil structure in research for food, they form channels and pores, which improve the soil structure.
