The evidence is clear: many of the most commonly used pesticides–both synthetic AND organic–can harm beneficial and pollinator species of insects. It’s a problem many homeowners grapple with when deciding to treat their homes and yards, and a challenge that our pest management professionals and entomologists are always discussing in meetings and protocol and pest plan reviews and design. We all owe it to future generations though to face the issue, though, and create pollinator safe pest control plans that reduce harm to the insect species that play an important role in our environmental systems.
If you want to do more than just prevent harm to pollinator species, consider creating areas in your yard for pollinators. Pollinator gardens are a great project for your yard and are both great for the environment and can be a beautiful part of your home and yard. Check out the USDA’s website on Gardening for Pollinators for some ideas on how to add a pollinator garden to your home.
