Pollinating insects, primarily bees, provide billions of dollars worth of pollination services to agricultural systems across the US each year. However, populations of these important insects are jeopardized by a multitude of stressors including habitat loss, land development, pathogens, pesticides, and climate change. There have been many conservation efforts towards protecting pollinator communities in agricultural areas, but questions still remain about how best to do so. Learn about examples of conservation efforts in North Carolina and how the pollinator community responds.
