Both wrong. Being intense heat sources, both generate immense updraft.
You'll nail the bulk of the critters, spreading the rest all over the place.
Um, and why should these be localized infestations? Because they attempt
to be particularly nice? If anything, you can assume that whatever you're

Not a good idea.
As to shields, look from Earth from space. It's rather green in places.
Are all of the plants going to get shields, too? One for every leaf?
And what are you going to power these with?
