Well the farmers in California are having a small problem. They want to grow seedless oranges and these darn honeybees keep cross pollinating there crops with pollen that causes the oranges to have seeds. So do wemove the beesno, Let's move the whole orchard.

And declare a no fly zone.

Oh brother, get with the program, so what on earth is wrong with a few little seeds?  Progress.  Well, so much for that.  Great day. Cindi

How do they think they'll keep the wild bees, and any other pollinating insect, away?

The most amazing thing about this issue is the biggest mandarin farmer in Cal. who wants seedless madarins is also one of the biggest almond growers. Guess what; he wants almond pollination. He even has both crops on the same plots of land. Talk about wanting and eating cake! A few seeds never killed anyone. They are claiming that the value of the mandarins w/ seeds is significantly lower than the seedless.

I guess the humans are just becoming too darn lazy, all there is to it.  Great day.  Cindi
