Pollinators' Paradise

[WL] Beetles, wasps, bees and moths: all are welcome in Benjamin Spöth’s Pollinators’ Paradise, a modular garden fencing system to provide food and shelter for nature’s creepy-crawlies. “About one third of the food we eat is dependent on insects for pollination. The population levels of many important pollinators have been seeing a steady decline, primarily due to monoculture and loss of habitat,” says Spöth. Individual elements can be integrated into the structure to cater to specific species. There are hollow rods and twigs for nesting, hardy refuges for winter, and pots for flowering plants, guaranteeing a steady supply of nectar throughout the year.
