What is a pollinator?
A pollinator is an animal species that helps carry pollen from the male part of the plant to the female part of the plant. This helps the plant fertilize and produce fruits and seeds; which produces more plants and food. There are many different animal species that are pollinators. Most people think of bees and butterflies as the sole animal pollinators. But certain flies, beetles, birds, and bats are also pollinators!
