The barbecue market in Germany is indeed showing further growth, however the industry is in the meantime miles away from the two-digit increase it was able to achieve in past years.

Over the past years one theme has come under focus among some of the garden owners that hardly played a role in this form previously: Insects. In the past, measures were taken more to get rid of the insects and one was pleased when there weren’t too many insects creeping and flattering around one’s own garden.
