Wisconsin lawmakers are looking to take their pollinator protections beyond No Mow May.
A handful of Democrats yesterday introduced what they are calling the Pollinator Protection Package. State Senator Melissa Agard said the idea is to make sure the state isn’t harming bees and butterflies, and other pollinators. The package would create rules for state agencies on the use of certain insecticides. As well as rules for certain native prairie and forage plants, allow local governments to limit or prohibit the use of certain insecticides.
Agard says protecting Wisconsin’s pollinators is key to ‘developing a positive coexistence between ecosystems.’
