This primer provides a summary of how land managers can protect and provide habitat for bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Specifically, this 8-page booklet reviews the potential impacts of fire, grazing, mowing, herbicides, and insecticides. It then provides a series of recommendations for how land managers can adjust their use of these management actions to benefit pollinators. More detailed guidelines related to habitat management will be released by the Xerces Society in March 2008.
