Description: Pollinators, including bees, moths, beetles and butterflies, are critical to the production of nearly one?third of the world's food supply. Our pollinator populations are decreasing due to a combination of factors, including habitat loss and fragmentation, overuse of pesticides, malnutrition, disease and parasites. It is imperative that we, as responsible gardeners, provide food and habitat for pollinators by creating patches of sanctuary habitats to support and preserve these valuable creatures.
