Sourcing Native Plants

While you make find native plants at the big box stores, be sure to check if they have been treated with neonicotinoid pesticides. These pesticides are quite common, making up nearly 30% of all pesticides sold worldwide, and contribute to declines in a variety of wildlife including wild pollinators, birds, and fish. So far, Canada has not banned this toxin.
