An average garden has more than 2,000 different species of insect! 🐝🐛🦋🐌🐞🐜🦟🦗🕷
Very few of these creatures cause significant damage to our plants and there are many more insects that actually help us with pest control. They are also a vital source of food for many animals, as well as creating and aerating the soil.
By providing the right habitats, we can greatly increase the number of ‘beneficial’ insects in the garden. Why not build a Bug Hotel in your garden to help these valuable invertebrates.
By using up materials found in your garden, this is a great fun activity for everyone, whatever space you have and counts for the Wild Marlow Gardens Campaign 💚 https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/actions/how-build-bug-mansion
