The state government’s Good Living initiative has provided the following tips to attract animals and insects:
1. Attracting native bees
Native bees play an important role in the environment. There are about 1650 native bee species in Australia, and there’s lots you can do to entice native bees to your garden. Make sure you choose native plants which native bees would choose, avoid using insecticides, and give native bees somewhere to live. Did you know native bees don’t typically sting? Most bees sting to defend their hives, but most native bees don’t build hives, and some native bees actually aren’t capable of stinging.
