Bee substitutes?

Can you believe this backwards way of thinking? 🙄🤦‍♀️ I am shaking my head. It would be a better solution to just not spray.

    Mind boggling!

    I saw a documentary a while ago about a province in China that had been so inundated with chemicals that there were no bees left to pollinate the lucrative Chinese Apple-Pear crop. This situation created a new employment field. People were hired to hand pollinate the flowers. However, from what I understand, in the years since spraying of chemicals has stopped in one region, bees are slowing starting to make a come back. Gives one hope.
