Spring is one of my favourite times of the year because all the insects that build nests, honey comb and webs are now emerging. There is a "buzz" in the air that you haven't heard for the past six months. For example, our apple trees now have a variety of insects foraging at all times. All this hustle to and from the blooms creates a hectic traffic system just above our heads. Buzzing bees, flies, beetles, spiders, lady bugs and all sorts of insects going about their busy lives, engineering and building some of natures most fascinating designs. These insects work tirelessly to create delicate structures that we, if lucky enough, are able to see. This news letter is about some of those special builders!
Enjoy! - Owen Rodger
