Yakima, Washington, start-up markets potent lure to boost pollination.

“It’s like putting 1,000 flowers at one spot,” said Chris Nobbs, one of the owners of Pollinate Pro, a Yakima, Washington, start-up that sells a pollinator attractant paste to orchardists.

Nobbs and his partner, Shawn Hazen, who began working on the product about eight years ago, so far have enticed growers up and down the West Coast to try the blue-colored, flowery-smelling paste.
