Pollinator Habitat Planning and 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.
