Robo-Bees May Bring New Fix for Pollination Problem – NBC News

Mini drones sporting horsehair coated in a sticky gel could one day take the pressure off beleaguered bee populations by transporting pollen from plant to plant, researchers said.Roughly three-quarters of the world’s flowering plants and about 35 percent of the world’s food crops depend on animals to pollinate them, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.Some of nature’s most prolific pollinators are bees, but bee populations are declining around the world, and last month, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service listed a native species as endangered for the first time.

Who didn’t see this coming?

So instead of working on the problem and actually trying to save bees (the trump administration has delayed the listing of some bees as endangered) we’ll come up with mechanical animals to do something about it.  Sickening to even technology enthusiasts.

Thanks!
