Laudato Si

Laudato Si

Insects are vital for the pollination of vegetable and food crops BUT the world population of insects, not just bugs and flies but butterflies and bees has declined by 80%. This decline is here in Guernsey too so we must do what we can to encourage insects. We can stop using insecticides and herbicides (weed killers ) such as Roundup, or we can look for natural remedies such as vinegar, or basically let some of those weeds live as the are food and protection for insects. Learn to live with a little untidiness knowing it is providing sustenance for insects.
