Insects are vital to overall biodiversity, they are a source of food for other wildlife, they help with decomposition, often act as pest control, and the presence of insects can indicate a healthy ecosystem.

However, in the UK, flying insects have declined by 60% in the last 20 years due to the loss and damage of habitats, climate change, and pesticide use. By accommodating for insects in our own gardens, it encourages other wildlife and helps toward the general health of our ecosystems.
