There are several factors being linked to the decline, including parasites such as mites, pesticides and the loss of natural habitat. The combination of factors seems to make it worse. There are several things a home gardener can do to help maintain the pollinator population.

If you have Full Coverage (Comprehensive & Collision) on your personal auto policy most insurance companies extend that coverage to car rentals, so you may ask why buy their optional coverage?
