Insects & flowers

The diversity of pollen gathering insects and other animal is impressive: bees, bumblebees, butterflies...

They are looking for the pollen produce by flower. By taking it they enable the reproduction of the flowers, and the pollination of flowers that will became fruit.

Without the polen gathering insects the flora would disappear.

Human activities (the use of pesticide, the urbanisation) put the environment in danger.

For 10 years, Guiraud has been planting 4 km of vegetable fences (hazel tree, hawthorn, charm, bourdaine, dogwood, elm, sloe, maple, viorne, sorb, charcoal, lime) to recreate a living space for insects and a protection for the vineyard.
