Insects, like all other beings on Earth, and the overall elements and forms of inanimate nature, are just a link in balancing the natural balance. They are important because they break down dead organisms and have a significant sanitary role. They are pollinating 4/5 entomophilous plants (those pollinated by insects), thus ensuring the continued existence of plant species as well as food to countless other animals (birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians …). They even proliferate the plants by transferring their seeds (known as anthrax gardens when seedlings of some plants sag into the anthill). They process a little soil, they source food to other animals, and even humans. About 70 families are used in human nutrition; they are rich in proteins, minerals, and vitamins.

Two nutrition groups

Nutritionally, insects are divided into two large groups monophagous and polyphagous. Monophagous insects feed on one species of the plant, possibly more species within one genus. For example, Easter butterfly (Zerynthia polyxena) is a monophagous species, and it feeds on the Aristolochia, which grows along the roads and edges of the forest. Given human domination over the Earth, all forest roads with settlements are regularly maintained by mowing and pruning, so Aristolochia is automatically destroyed. Buttermilk remains without a foster plant and inability to further develop. For this reason, monophagous species are much more susceptible to the number and survival than polyphagous foods that feed on more plant species. Their adjustment to the resulting changes is greater, and therefore the safety of the species itself.

Insects are friends

Evolving ever faster, man ruthlessly destroys many natural habitats of countless plant and animal species. Their concentration on the smaller natural surface has increased enormously and often come into contact with various living beings. Most often, our irrational fears arise from ignorance, so we unnecessarily enlarge the situation and make a problem where it does not exist. Every fear and problem should come wisely and rationally. The enormous fear is the bees, not knowing that they fly around us in search of food. Enthophobia (fear of insects) should be solved by gradual confrontation because it is truly irrational and unnecessary fear in life.

Insects are a very interesting group of animals, there are countless variations, sizes, colors, shapes, lifestyles, and survival, etc., and they do not leave anyone indifferent. A true nature lover lives a biocentric life, believing that all living beings have the right to life and that all beings exist for a reason. Irrational thinking that bees should be killed because there are already too many of them is thinking of a person who certainly does not know what he is talking about. Bees are essential to our life, and to the life of all plants. So the conclusion is that the insects are quite friendly, that we certainly depend on them (and most of the life on Earth) and that they are a very important link in the food chain.
