Why is Planting for Pollinators Important?
Whether you are a farmer of many acres, land manager of a large tract of land, or a gardener with a small lot, you can increase the number of pollinators in your area by making conscience choices to include plants that provide essential habitat for bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, hummingbirds, and other pollinators.

Hear What People are Saying About the Guides
"I am writing a book on bees, wasps, and ants for gardeners and have included reference to your guides and your website, both of which are super. You are providing a great service to the gardening community. Many thanks."
-Eric Grissell Sonoita, AZ
"I found the guide to be visually pleasing and well written. I found my way without effort and loved the print size (using a laptop). I have never thought of flies as pollinators. Now, I feel almost bad for the swats".
- Sharon Weston
"I recently downloaded your guide for the region appropriate for Connecticut. I found it to be just what I was looking for in terms of plantings I can add to my yard that would support pollinators. It provided a lot of information on what kinds of pollinators are in my area, as well as many tips to make my yard more user-friendly for bees, butterflies, birds, etc. I don't think there is anything you didn't cover. The presentation was concise, easy-to-read, and enjoyable. Thanks so much for all the hard work that went into these guides. I look forward to improving my property both for myself, and all the wildlife that relies on it."
-Lisa Banik Waterbury, CT
"Your guide has opened up a whole new area of ecological observation and quick reference as to what species of pollinators use what plants as well as an opportunity through personal observation as to what additional pollinator are important . All of these pollinators and the pollination process are providing food and future fruits and seed production for birds. People must realize that you cannot have the butterflies and moths without the caterpillars and you cannot have food for the birds and other wildlife without the pollinators."
