What are pollinators?

Birds, bats, butterflies, moths, flies, beetles, wasps, small mammals, the wind, and most importantly, bees are pollinators. They visit flowers to drink nectar or gather pollen and in the process transport pollen grains from flower to flower, pollinating the plants so they can bear fruit. 

 What is Bugageddon?

Scientists have determined that in the last 40 years, we have lost 60% of the bug biomass worldwide. Considering all the things insects do from pollinating to cleaning up rotting materials and being the best food source for many birds, any reversal of this trend is beneficial to all species.
