Cocoa Bean Shell Mulch

Hi, I was going to ask this in a previous thread, but the reply function wasn't working, so I'll create a new one. You said in previous thread that jumping larvae in cocoa bean mulch were found to be Euxesta notata, Picture-winged flies in the Ulidiidae group. Do those present any danger to my plants? Should I try to get rid of them or just ignore them? An internet search of picture-winged flies concluded that some picture-winged fly larvae eat plants, and some don't.
