I think our agricultural desert is more sterile than an urban area. Sprayers are dumping something on the soil every week. I know it's not all insecticides but none of it is likely to be beneficial to wildlife or my efforts to support it.
I try and maintain the whole site for wildlife. Occasionally I curse a stray rabbit or muntjac, when they nip off the hellebore heads or eat a newly planted shrub, but mostly we rub along OK.
