Plant a pollinator garden
Help critters out by planting native plants around your home. Native plants help provide species like insects and birds with food, shelter and proper habitat to reproduce.
Native plants are your best bets as the species in your area are specially adapted to pollinate the plants indigenous to their habitat.
Some pollinator favorites include alyssum, basil, the aptly-named butterfly bush, fennel, lavender, marigold, oregano, verbena and yarrow.
