Much has been done to promote insect-life in Bangsbo Botanic Garden – the ponds, watercourses, and moat are good places to see insects – especially damselflies and dragonflies.
Plants rich in nectar for bumblebees and butterflies, have been planted between the ornamental grasses in The Grass Garden, attracting a ‘joyous-multitude’ of life to this part of the garden in mid-summer.
The latest feature created to benefit insects, is to be found at the top of the slope in The Botanical Area. Frederikshavn’s ‘Mini–Ranger’ group, together with Park-Ranger, Bo Storm, have built a brushwood fence as an ‘insect-hotel’. Afterwards, staff from Bangsbo Botanic Garden have sown a ‘wild-flower’ bed in front of the fence.
