Gardening for Pollinators & Beneficial Insects

You might have heard that the pollinator population is in trouble. Find out what this means, how this affects the reproduction of plants and food production, and what you as a home gardener can to do benefit native pollinators. Many of the same gardening practices will also attract insects that provide natural pest control and other beneficial services.
