YOUR FARM IS AN ECOSYSTEM ~ ITS NEEDS TO HAVE ALL THE PLAYERS PRESENT
Insects play a vital role on our planet ~ they are the essential pollinators, and without them there would be no plant life on our planet. They are also the essential prey….. the food for birds that require them to feed protein to their growing young. Without them there is nest failure….
BUT INSECT NUMBERS ARE DECLINING SIGNIFICANTLY WORLD WIDE.
And why ……. by the widespread use of poisons and habitat loss for them.
This is why it is so important for you to see your farm as an ECOSYSTEM. When you treat it as such, poisons are out of the question, and your land becomes a diverse habitat that supports all the members of that system.
