If you want to be active in nature conservation, it's best to start in your own garden. In June, among other things, it is important to assist birds in their foraging for their young, to provide toads, frogs, pigs, salamanders and Co. a suitable shelter and to provide insects with the right planting insects with food. Bees, butterflies and other flying insects are on their way in abundance. Our June tips for more nature conservation in the garden.
Conservation thanks to bird bath
With a birdbath or a birdbath, you can lure many animals into your garden. Nice side effect of this conservation measure: The birds are excellent for swimming or drinking. Incidentally, they not only quench their thirst here, they also help them with the cool water to regulate their body temperature better. So do not set up the birdbath in the blazing sun. Here, the water heats up very quickly, evaporates and algae formation is promoted. In any case, you should always ensure that there is enough water and the pool is clean. So not only birds, but generally insects or hedgehogs at night can lure themselves at the waterhole.
Rosehips as food sources
Do you have a rosehip rose in your garden? For the sake of the animals, do not brush all withered flowers, but leave a few. They develop into the sham fruit known as rose hips, which serve as food for the animals in your garden in autumn and winter. But not only birds, mice or rabbits benefit from the delicious rosehips, we humans can profitably use the healthy vitamin C bombs. It can be used to make tea or dried for natural autumn decoration. And: Still hanging on the bush makes the colorful fruit decorations in the garden so much.
Rosehips are very popular in mice
The already mentioned amphibians yearn for a cool, dark and often damp shelter in June. You can easily offer them to the animals by giving them a dark garden corner. Suitable for nature conservation are piles of leaves, stones or wood left over from the last pruning. Tip: If you layer the materials with a little skill, they will be less "messy".
Do not overdo it with lawn care
An English lawn may appeal to the human eye, but animals do not feel very comfortable. For more nature conservation, you should either sow a wildflower meadow from the outset or at least care for some parts of your lawn not too meticulously. Here and there, for the sake of the animals, have a few daisies, dandelions, some clover or isolated buttercup plants. They serve as important food sources and attract insects such as bees, caterpillars or butterflies into your garden.
