Insects play a massive role not just in the food chain but also pollination. When weather conditions are temperamental, this can affect their numbers and insects can be found few and far between. An insect-house can help with insect population and are usually placed in a garden. Those who live in a flat can buy an insect-house because it can be put outside a window or hung from a washing line. An insect-house can also be bought for a property that only has a small garden.
As well as ladybirds and lacewings, an insect-house can be bought for other bugs. The primary goal of an insect-house is to offer insects a place to shelter or providing sustenance, such as bees. One of the most important insects in the food chain, bees can shelter in an insect-house whilst it is raining. A butterfly feeding station can also help. These insect houses are the tip of the iceberg because there are plenty of other items to choose from which can help insects. As the size of each insect-house differs, one can be found which fits perfectly into a garden or outside a window in a top floor flat.
