    estimated value of the work of honey bees in the USA is somewhere between $1.6 billion and $14.6 billion (de Lange and Veldtman). With these six-legged employees gone, farmers would be losing billions of dollars of free labor, not including the cost of equipment, research, and workers. The use of artificial pollination is estimated to cost hundreds of billions of dollars simply to do a job that is already being effectively done by nature (de Lange and Veldtman). Hand pollination is both time and…
