Pollinator species such as bees, butterflies, and birds are vital to the survival of 80% of the world’s flowering plants, including 75% of food crops! Exposure to pesticides, loss of floral abundance, and habitat destruction have led to a decline in pollinator species worldwide. In the United States, for example, we’ve seen a decline of 30% in bee populations each year since 2006.
How can you help? If flowers are available, hungry bees will visit! Urban gardeners can help attract pollinators by planting native plants, and often cities and suburbs exhibit more diversity in pollinator species than nearby wild lands.
We can help you beautify your yard or balcony while also creating a vital pollinator hotspot!
