We have noticed a rapid change in the timing of beetle hatches. This past summer we saw almost no click beetles, and even the ubiquitous June beetle was markedly reduced. Other beetles seem to show up late. Because our bats are closely tied to the timing and nutrition available through native insects, these reports are very alarming.Please do your part! Plant native! And please, leave stems and seed heads standing, leave leaf litter, and use natural mulches, because the decomposition of natural mulch enriches soil and keeps soil warm enough to support insects over winter. Mulch: not just to look pretty!You can help insects and all the wildlife and plants they support by planting native plants. Create a park in your own spaces by planting the plants that are native to your immediate area. How do you "figure out what kinds of plants those are? If you're in California go to "Calscape .org" and put in your zip code. If you're not in California go to "native plant finder" and put in your zip code. Thanks, some animals leave our park and migrate hundreds of miles or more. We hope they find food in your communities so that they survive to make it back to the redwoods ... See MoreSee Less
