Provide shelter for winter visitors
Some ideas are:
- upside-down flower pots
- a small sheet of corrugated iron or onduline
- piles of rock or logs
- leaf litter
- native wire vines and nettles.
Limit use of pesticides and herbicides
Pesticides and herbicides are harmful not only to pests but also to pollinators. They can also end up in streams, ponds, or rivers.
If you need to control pests, apply pesticides and herbicides after sundown when most pollinators have stopped moving around the garden. Try to use organic pesticides.
