About us   

Many plants benefit from pollinators. Some, like almonds trees, are dependent on them to reproduce. Pollinators are attracted to nectar or pollen. As the pollinator goes from flower to flower, they help plants reproduce, providing us with fruits, vegetables, and nuts. There are many different species of pollinators, including the well-known honey bees, bumble bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, and the lesser known bats, lizards, flies, and beetles.
