Significance to humans

With the possible exception of the yellow tit, the tits are of no known economic significance, but are of contemporary cultural importance in some areas due to the close relationship with humans shown by many species. Also, many species readily visit gardens to take foods provided for them, and will also readily use nest-boxes.
