Picked up by the Washington Post

One of the most interesting products served up for Pollinator Week was a short documentary by the nature photographer Clay Bolt. “A Ghost in the Making” was about his quest to find the rusty patched bumblebee, once common and now exceedingly rare. In it, he quotes the Xerces Society’s Rich Hatfield, whose pronouncement aligns squarely with my own view. “Bumblebees and other pollinators really need three things: They need flowers, they need a safe place to build their nest, and they need a pesticide-free environment, and as long as you can provide those things, it truly is a ‘Build it and they will come’ scenario.”
