The number of bugs and pollinating insects residing in urban areas have been drastically reduced due to the use of pesticides, fungicides and herbicides among other bug killers. Manicured lawns and insect-free backyards are encouraging factors for an increase in the amount of sprays and chemicals that are used throughout neighborhoods. By creating a framework that marries an aesthetic architecture with proper habitat elements for a diverse group of arachnids and aphids, the bug pollinator habitat gives a home to bugs and insects outside and away from houses. It also allows bugs to pollinate gardens and plant life within communities, allowing more food and beautiful flowers for fellow critters and people alike to enjoy.
