How to Help Pollinators


You can help bees, hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators by not using pesticides and herbicides in your yard and gardens.  These days, with their numbers dwindling, bees need all the help they can get.

For ways to avoid herbicides, pesticides, insecticides and fungicides and more reasons for avoiding them, see my post here.

You can even plant a pollinator garden.  Here are pollinator friendly plants:
Coneflower
Bee Balm
Milkweed
Fennel
Columbians
Sunflower
Dill
Lupton
Lavender
Black Eyed Susan
Sage
Oregano

For more pollinator friendly plants and for plants specific to your region, click here.
