Insects shrinkage: It's not just the pesticides

60 percent of the 1143 in Switzerland occurring insect species are endangered. "Worrying" to find the Swiss academies of Sciences. Because insects provide "invaluable services" such as pest control, pollination and humus production.

A long-term study out of Germany has revealed that in the last 30 years, the insect biomass by 76 per cent has decreased. The relations with the Swiss Mittelland, is comparable to that shared with the academies on Friday.

It's not just the pesticides that kill the pests, the beneficial insects. Structures such as hedges, stone piles, alone standing trees and dead wood – all habitats for insects – put away. Even in private gardens and on public green spaces, habitats are destroyed, insects-by too much care.

The consequences are dramatic

The fewer pollinators occur, the lower the fruit - and seed production, for example, in the case of fruit and vegetables. Since, in the absence of insects, less organic Material is decomposed, is formed in addition, less Humus and the fertility of the soil decreases.

in Addition, the natural pest regulation is failing. Harmful organisms to multiply. Now, you can also purchase beneficial insects like the parasitic wasp – a natural enemy of various moths, flies, and beetles – in the trade, as well as wild bees, the classic pollinators.

"the insects shrinkage to stop, and to keep the risks as low as possible, it is particularly urgent, the well-known causes for the declines to go for it now", send a reminder to the academies. (nag/sda)
