Pollinators are not only essential to our environment, but also to production agriculture.
Nearly 85% of all plants rely on pollinators to reproduce. Upwards of 100 crop species
benefit from pollinators, to the tune of $3 billion in economic value annually in
the United States. While bees, particularly honey bees, are commonly thought of as
pollinators, other insects, birds, and mammals also provide pollination services to
various plant species.
