7 Pollinators That You Should Know
National Pollinator Health Awareness Week is here! June 21st-27th, join us in celebration as we talk about some of our favorite pollinators. If you didn’t already know, Franklin Pest Solutions is team pollinators! Our main focus is protecting the health of our community but we also know that each living thing has an important role in our ecosystem. One of the ways that we like to give back to our 6 legged friends is by planting pollinator gardens in our communities. By doing this, we give bugs that are considered “pesky” within our homes a natural habit that benefits us both. Read on for more information on the 7 pollinators that you should know about.
