Bee hand pollination

Ok, so I heard about this on KVIE, and it goes beyond the point of ridiculous.

In some areas of China, they sprayed so much pesticides, they killed all the bees. Now there ain’t no bees to left to pollinate their trees, so they have to HAND pollinate.

Imagine hundreds of Chinese people with little feather brushes, climbing up on trees and smearing each flower with pollen. Apparently each person can do about 30 trees a day, bees can do about 3000 trees a day ( I think that the correct number – Maybe higher).

Anyways, I don’t know about you, but this is just ridiculous….
