Diversity of species

Did you know that inside your house, on the patio or balcony, a diversity of species inhabit that we live with daily, but that we rarely observe?

Biodiversity can not only be observed in parks, squares, beaches or fields, our homes are the habitat of many living beings in addition to ourselves. Every day we cohabit with different species inside and outside our homes, which, although we may not believe it, play an important role in this intimate ecosystem that is our home. Our homes are ecosystems that group different living beings that have chosen or have been brought to our house to inhabit.

There is both wild and domestic biodiversity. We have plants in pots or in the garden, but also grass and grass that grows without us planting it. We have birds that build their nests in trees or on roofs, but also poultry or pets such as chickens, ducks and canaries. Less observed are the insects that roam our house day and night, looking for shelter, food and a place to lay their eggs. The fungi that appear at any sign of humidity, in the house, in food even on clothes, and do not forget about the parasites fleas, ticks, aphids and so many others that we do not see and cohabit with us forming a great ecosystem , where if we do not take care of the proportions we can face complications from pests, contamination and diseases.
