We’d be in big trouble without pollinators. Bees, butterflies, a host of other insects and even hummingbirds carry the load of pollinating our food crops and ornamentals. Let’s get to the nitty-gritty of what occurs. Nectar is food for bees, hummingbirds, even beetles. While gathering it, they fertilize flowers by scattering pollen from flower to flower as they rummage around gathering nectar. The alternative methods of pollination are by wind or for us to take a tiny brush and flit from flower to flower. It’s much easier and successful helping our winged friends.
