Welcome to Pollinator Revival!
Recent events have led to moratoriums or bans of specific pesticides in Washington State, Canada and Europe. Our mission is to educate sellers and consumers about the pesticides we have been using for years, just to have a garden that looks perfect, unaware of the harmful effects to our valuable pollinators.

We’ve added new menu items!
Risky Business includes information on pesticides harmful to pollinators and other beneficial insects.
Safer Options includes a chart listing pesticides that will manage some insect infestations. Both pages are works in progress, we’ll continue to add information on products.
Best choice, of course, would be to use manual controls and accept some damage. Most insects do no harm to the plant unless it is already stressed.
If you do Facebook, please like our page. We’ll continue to post news, articles and show support for retailers who have voluntarily removed neonicotinoids from their shelves.
