Pollinator survey - Meet the pollinating insects
If you mention insect pollinators, most people think of the honeybee. Did you know, there are so many more types of invertebrates which are just as, if not more important, when it comes to pollination? Bumblebees, solitary bees, flies, beetles, butterflies, moths and wasps all share the load of pollinating our wildflower and crop species.
