Do you know which are the most dangerous pests in your British garden? There are a lot of pests in the UK, but surprisingly the ones that cause the most damage are often brought from other countries.
The local ecosystem can't contain these aggressive species, and in the end, there is little to nothing that can be done to protect and maintain the ecological balance.
When a non-native species is introduced to an ecosystem which lacks its natural predators, this species thrives. It starts to destroy the local food chain, and many animals are endangered of being extinct.
The worst part is that common pesticides often don't work on these foreign bugs or the chemicals can seriously damage the local biodiversity.
It is important to learn how to spot some of the most common invaders and find out how can you contribute to the preservation of the British fauna and flora.
