Bees. Birds. Butterflies. Bugs. Without pollinators, we would have a third less food to eat.
Did you know that bees are the major pollinators in North America and they perform over 70% of the pollination services? There are 855 species of native bees in Canada -- bumble bees, mason bees, sweat bees, leaf cutting bees, mining bees, squash bees and more -- in addition to the western domesticated honey bee. And they need our help!
Planting and growing native food sources for pollinators like beetles, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and moths (and even flies) will help them survive, and your garden blossom.
