chives

Bug of the Day - Bonus!

I fell a little behind on Pollinator Week, so here’s a bonus BotD.

Chives are actually a decent early spring source of sustenance for pollinators. Here’s a Peck’s skipper (Polites peckius) dining on chive flowers. Chives are not native where I live, but the plants I have are well-behaved and stay in their containers :-).
