My general rule of thumb: the ladybug, praying mantis, and spider can stay. Grasshoppers, ants, aphids, beetles, slugs, snails, and any other bug I find on or under the leaves must go. I've also had termites in mulch before, and read that they won't harm plants so I left them and they moved on. This is about bugs, but as a side note, lizards and toads should also be welcomed in the garden.

Any bug that is slow in crawling in my garden gets the boot the longer they stay the longer they prey.

Hello!
The green stinkbug or brown stinkbug are even better to fight aphids than the ladybug because ladybug flies away when the stinkbug doesn't fly so well and will stay in your garden.
