“If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.” – E.O. Wilson
From pollination of crops and flowering plants to providing an important foundation of many food chains, insects provide ecosystem and economic services that are vital to the health of the world. Unfortunately, studies show that many species of insects and other invertebrates are experiencing significant global decline. Fortunately, adopting homegrown conservation practices can help support insects and other wildlife at home.
