According to the United States Department of Agriculture, one-third of agricultural crops depend on pollinators. On a more global perspective, approximately 75% of all plants on earth require insects or animals for pollination. Without the assistance of pollinators, most plants can’t produce fruit and seeds. Pollinators include bees, butterflies, and moths. For more information on protecting and promoting pollinators and their habitats, and recommendations for plants to grow in your yard or garden, visit the website of the non-profit organization, Pollinator Partnership, at www.pollinator.org.
