BUT WE CAN HELP THEM
We believe that the key to understanding insect populations is to monitor their behaviour in real time, in more places across the globe.
That's why we're creating smart monitors that connect to an online platform, providing a reliable research tool for scientists, businesses and amateur enthusiasts alike.
SO WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
Insects form the biological foundation of our terrestrial ecosystems.
They provide multiple critical ecosystem services. Without them life as we know it would collapse.
87% of plant species require animal pollination, most of which is done by insects.
96% of North American terrestrial birds rear their young on insects.
Insects contribute to organic matter decomposition, nutrient cycling and aeration.
Many insects habitually transport small seeds and fruits, often unconsciously.
Beneficial insects serve as natural predators to harmful pest species.
