Humans have had an impact on the natural environment and natural species for decades and it isn’t new news that humans can impact the biodiversity and the habitats of certain insects, including beetles. Beetles are essential parts of Long Island ecosystems since they decompose organisms and as such return their nutrients to the soil.. Many different species of beetles exist to serve this purpose. Due to the extent of inhibition across Long Island, the eradication of beetles is unlikely. However, the conditions which are imposed on beetles are impacted by human interaction. Each park on Long Island has its fair share of visitors, which come and unintentionally disrupt the ecosystems and the habitats of many inhabitant species.
