When more than 100 of the monarch butterflies that nest in Becky Yeager’s yard in Nibley died just hours after her neighbor sprayed insecticides, she realized the impact that pesticides and drift have on Cache Valley’s pollinators.

Yeager, a conservation ecologist who specializes in pollinator habitats, has worked in monarch conservation for 10 years. According to her, there needs to be more education surrounding pesticides and their effects on local pollinators.
