Cost-effective roadside revegetation methods to support insect pollinators

Pollinators such as rusty-patched bumble bees and Monarch butterflies are at risk due to the loss of native habitat from increasing development, intensive agricultural practices, and greater use of pesticides. Roadside habitats have grown in importance as they can provide habitat and act as migratory corridors. This research will establish roadside vegetation management recommendations with the potential for maintenance cost savings.
