Insects, including the honey bee as well as wild bee species, butterflies, beetles, wasps and flies, are important pollinators. Honey bees and other insect pollinators provide important pollination service to millions of acres of fruit, nuts, vegetables and other flowers across North America.

Pesticides play an important role in controlling insects, mites, weeds and diseases on farms and in urban landscapes. Most pesticides can be used safely around honey bees and other insect pollinators, when label directions and stewardship practices are followed.

This brochure presents the proper practices that minimize harm to pollinators and preserves their food sources, water and habitat while effectively using pesticides to control harmful insects, weeds and diseases.
