MicroNova is now officially part of the alliance against insect mortality and species decline
"The number of insects and their species richness have declined massively. With the Blühpakt Bayern we want to stop this trend and develop a broad alliance to achieve this." - so it says on the web pages of the Bavarian Blüpakt Bayern. MicroNova is now officially part of this alliance.
The two bee colonies, which have been "living" on the MicroNova premises for a good year now, together with the naturally designed outdoor facilities, were the trigger for MicroNova to apply for participation in the Bavarian Blühpakt Bayern - and they were also the reason for receiving a commitment from the responsible State Ministry for the Environment and Consumer Protection. The certificate arrived in Vierkirchen in March 2020. It certifies "membership" of the Pact for an initial period of three years (see also: Website Blühpakt Bayern).
MicroNova founder and Chairman of the Supervisory Board Josef W. Karl, said: "I am very pleased that we continue to be involved and contribute beyond the operational work. The most recent proof is our successful participation in the Bavarian Flowering Pact, which demonstrates the natural design of open spaces. We have also set up nesting boxes for starlings at the Vierkirchen site and planted further insect-friendly shrubs for our "house bees".
By the way, the bees were indeed diligent: 42 jars of honey could be filled in the 2019 season. So it is only logical that MicroNova has already built another corresponding property in Vierkirchen: Since spring 2020, an insect hotel complements the efforts to operate as close to nature as possible.
