The Department of the Environment continues to provide "hotels for insects" to school gardens in the town (11/05/2018)

The school María Inmaculada yesterday received the "hotels for insects" in an event that was attended by the mayor of the Environment, Isabel María Torrente.

The initiative, which is being developed in all schools that have a school garden, has the collaboration of users of the Association of Families and People with mental illness of Águilas y Comarca (AFEMAC), responsible for the construction of these peculiar " Hotels".

The "insect hotel" is a cabin-shaped cabin with several compartments of materials that can be found in nature (pieces of wood, pineapples, canes, etc.) that serve as shelter and hibernation to various species of insects.

On the importance of insects, Torrente said that "the decline in the population is confirmed, something very alarming considering the importance they have for agriculture (about 80% of the plants we grow depends on these pollinators ) as well as the fact that more than three quarters of the wild flowers need these animals to develop the fruit and seed, which serve as food for other species.
