Over 100,000 invertebrate species — such as bees, moths, butterflies, beetles, and flies — serve as pollinators worldwide. At least 1,035 species of vertebrates, including birds, mammals, and reptiles, also pollinate many plant species.

In Alabama, a single southeastern blueberry bee pollinates approximately $75 worth of berries by visiting nearly 50,000 blueberry flowers in a year.

The value of pollination services from wild pollinators in the United States alone is estimated at four to six billion dollars per year.
