Beyond Butterflies: Gardening for Native Pollinators (B 1349)

Summary

Pollination is essential to successful reproduction in more than 90 percent of the 250,000 flowering plant species now in existence. More than 100,000 varieties of insects, including bees, moths, butterflies, beetles and flies, serve as pollinators, as do at least 1,035 species of vertebrates, including birds, mammals and reptiles. Using some basic principles, home gardeners and landscapers can create pollinator-friendly gardens to preserve native pollinator populations and enjoy the beauty and interest they provide.
