The number of insects continues to decline. If not addressed, this development will have fatal consequences for animals, plants, the ecosystem, and humans. To counteract the decline of the insect population, individuals can take action as our infographic of the month shows.

Let grasses grow wild in the corners

Grasses should not be mowed, trimmed, or stepped on. Plants such as clover and nettles are important food sources for insects.

Plant early bloomers

The so-called early bloomers include snowdrops, daffodils, and crocuses. Insects such as citronella butterflies, ladybugs, and bees, who are active in the early hours of the day, particularly like these flowers.

Create a wildflower bed

Wildflowers not only make the garden colorful and eye-catching, they also attract insects. Wildflowers are easy to care for and also provide a place for insects to hibernate during the cold seasons. Some of the most important native wildflowers include ring fern, meadow sage, wild marjoram, and violets.

Herb gardens: a treat for both humans and insects

An herb garden is not only convenient for your own meal planning but is also very tasty for insects. Be it wild garlic, chives, dill, sage, or mint, insects love herbs just as much as people do.

As a rule of thumb:

The more native the plants are and the more colorful your garden is, the more attractive it will be to insects.
