Pollinators and Pesticide Stewardship
Pesticides play an important role in controlling insects, weeds, and diseases on farms and in urban landscapes. The areas treated for pests are often shared by pollinators which are attracted to blooming flowers for pollen and nectar. These pollinators can include not only honey bees but other insects such as butterflies, beetles, wasps, flies, birds, and bats. This brochure provides guidelines to follow before treating an area with pesticides when pollinators are present.
