Support the immature forms of the pollinators too. Plant natives that provide larval food for the butterflies that you want. Welcome the holes that the caterpillars make in your plants. Many insects are specialists. You might need to do a little research to include those plants in your pollinator garden.

Thank you for such an informative article. And just in time for the Million Pollinator Garden project sponsored by National Pollinator Garden Network.

Thank you for publishing this article, what a great resource. I used it as an outline to illustrate the importance of habitat to my edible garden students.

Marcy, thanks for this great resource which I used to help prepare for a public workshop on pollinator-friendly garden design.

Bats are the saver in every term! there are over 1,100 different species of bats that consume huge amounts of insects, including mosquitoes. Some bats can consume as much as 1,000 insects in an hour. Certain other bats also pollinate plants, which is another crucial part of our ecosystem cycle. Even bat droppings, also called guano, is used as a natural fertilizer. Guano works every bit as good as cow patties for fertilizer. https://www.austinbats.org
