Bugs reside throughout us: in our gardens, parks, farmland, within the soil beneath our ft and even within the cracks in a metropolis pavement, so we will all become involved in taking care of them, and making certain that these very important creatures don’t disappear. We might really feel helpless within the face of most of the environmental points that loom on our horizon, however we will all take easy steps to encourage bugs.”
