Where Would We Bee?
“Where Would We BEE Without Pollinators?” is the theme for the 65th anniversary of Soil and Water Stewardship Week.
Most plants depend upon pollinators to reproduce. While many pollinators may seem like just annoying insects, they form the underpinning of a healthy and sustainable future for food and the environment, but they have shown disturbing signs of decline in recent years.
When pollinators shrink in number, many plants either produce less seed or no seed at all.
There are more than 100,000 species of insects, including bees, flies, moths, butterflies and beetles that work hard as pollinators. There are also over 1,000 species of other animals such as birds, reptiles and mammals, including bats that pollinate plants.
Ottawa Soil & Water Conservation District can assist property owners in maintaining or developing habitat for pollinators. Visit the district’s Facebook page resources.
