Is dinner ready?
Let's face it. We all like to eat.

Much of our food production –
roughly 40% – relies on pollinators.


Pollinators like to eat, too!
They flutter from flower to flower,
consuming nectar and pollen.

Larval stages of butterflies and moths consume other parts of trees, forbs
and grasses.


Is this your American dream?
Well-maintained landscapes in America
are the pride and joy of homeowners, communities and businesses.

Managing these landscapes with pesticides destroys natural and healthy ecosystem services.


Pollinators are in trouble.
Monarchs are disappearing.
Honeybee colonies are collapsing.
Many of our native bumble bees
and other pollinators are at risk.

Excessive use of pesticides is
a contributing factor.

 

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.

Thank you,
Julia & Marilyn
