Pollinating insect such as bees, wasps, hoverflies, and butterflies help in maintaining biodiversity and vibrant ecosystems for plants, humans and other animals. These insects are vital for high quality, diversified foods and crops, farming and agriculture sustainability, and for protecting our biodiversity, landscape and regulating our natural environment. The DAFM, in conjunction with stakeholders of the farming, agricultural and horticultural sectors of Ireland, are making considerable efforts to make Ireland more pollinator friendly.
