nah, not quite true on that there Chris........

the common fly does more for pollination than the bees, but yeah.....bloody shame that the bees are getting flogged.

I am no expert but don't they pollinate different things. Like don't most plants/grasses/alfalfa get pollinated by bees, whereas flies are more linked to pollinating stone fruits like mangoes etc?
