Ecology interactions:?

If a flower is home to many insects that an animal eats. In the flower, there is an insect (insect A) that forms a mutualistic relationship with the flower. There is also bacteria on plant that cause holes in the flower's leaves. However, chemicals from insect A stop the bacteria. There is also another insect (insect B) that utilizes the flower's nectar and is herbivorous. Insect A also uses nectar. Insect A can also attack insect B. There is another insect C that uses the nectar of the flower but does not help the plant in its fight against herbivores and does not use chemicals.
