So, plant a bunch of rose of sharon that Japanese beetles like to eat and you have created a benefit for wildlife.

"Pollinator gardens" are all the rage so planting anything with flowers that European honeybees like will suffice.
Sad state of affairs.

I noticed the low bar for certifying habitat gardens as well.

Keep up the good fight.
