Traditionally, pollinating fruit trees was a job that was best done by all kinds of bees. But there aren’t many bees in China these days, which forces farmers to find other solutions. anyway, here are a number of interesting things found lately in the news which don't bode well for not just honey bees, but all Bees. Hopefully none of us live in an area where hand pollination will become the new abnormal. I stacked up several references, and I'd like to know if anyone knows the effects on seed production and reproduction health of plants of the protein count goes way down in pollen on the nutritional scale
