Did you ever know that insects are a vital component in the balance of our nature? Insects pollinate plants and serve other animals as valuable food. Every household should give them a suitable habitat in their gardens.
Insects: Instruments for nature concert
If you close your eyes in your garden, you will experience a true spectacle of nature: there is a buzz and buzz, buzz and buzz, buzz and chirp. Countless insects are the instruments of this nature concert.
But the music is getting quieter because the population of domestic insects has declined by over 80 percent in the past 15 years – partly because of intensive agriculture and the use of lots of pesticides. Due to the great loss, the miracle of nature begins to falter: the majority of plants rely on insects as pollinators, and many animals use them as food, for example for birds.
As gardeners, you must do your part to stop this development. If you take all of the private gardens together around the planet, you get an area that is roughly half the size of all protected areas. This is enormous and shows how great the potential that is in the gardens and how much you can achieve if you design your own piece of green close to nature. And that is not difficult at all. If you are into CoolSculpting then doing it in your garden would be more enjoyable.
Achieve a lot with simple means
Making your garden insect-friendly can often be implemented in a short time with simple measures. With a wild perch bed, a dead wood corner or just a small wild section in the garden, everyone can create a habitat for insects. Not only do insects benefit, we humans benefit from it as well. These little creatures help us fight unwanted insects and keep our plants healthy in the garden. In addition, you can offer insects a wide variety of food with the right plants. in doing so, you can contribute to saving natural resources.
Of course, balcony owners can also do something for insects. A nesting aid or a pot with insect plants can be realized in the smallest space.
