Insect House

Insect house in Rome

An insect house serves as a nesting site for insects.  Particularly vulnerable species – like the wild bees – can settle there to develop and reproduce in a quiet, sheltered space.
Many insects are pollinators and feed on parasites.  Thus they are very important for the ecosystem.  But modern agriculture and forestry have destroyed many habitats.  Dead tree stumps, piles of deadwood and hedges which served as nesting sites have been disposed of.

Furthermore insects have been killed by herbicides and pesticides.
With the construction of an insect house some species can be supported in their continued existence and their struggle for survival.
