Like all animals, pollinators need food (nectar and/or pollen), and water. Plants may provide enough water in their nectar to meet the needs of some pollinators. Access to salt and nesting habitats are also important. Nesting habitats vary considerably and include bare patches of soil, holes or cavities in rocks or wood, abandoned animal burrows, mud, wetlands or dead vegetation.
