June 19 to 25 is National Pollinator Week in the U.S. Approved by the U.S. Senate in 2007, this week helps recognize the work that bees, butterflies, and other creatures do to pollinate plants. There are several things one can do to celebrate the week. For starters you can attend an event on the Pollinator Partnership website. Another tip is refrain from using pesticides or herbicides as they kill or harm pollinating insects. Include native plants in your garden and include plants that bloom from spring through fall. A diverse garden will also help attract several types of beneficial pollinators. During the winter months, leave the garden standing to help protect insects.
