Pollinator Habitat Planning & Installation

Pollinators such as bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, flies, birds, and bats are needed for the reproduction of 90% of flowering plants and one third of human food crops. Each of us depends on pollinators in a practical way to provide us with the wide range of foods we eat. In addition, pollinators are part of the intricate web that supports the biological diversity in natural ecosystems that helps sustain our quality of life. Contact us to learn how to install Pollinator Habitat on your property.
