OK, this one might sting a bit… “Since there aren’t enough natural pollinators to take care of today’s commercial crops, just like there’s not enough rain to water them without the help of irrigation, the rental bees are brought in. Those same bees could get booked in every other corner of the country too, pollinating different crops in different seasons.” That leaves us with a lot of busy bees, and it helps explain why, as Andrew P. Collins explains in Jalopnik, That Big Rig You’re Passing Might Be Full of Bees. (Apologies in advance for all the buzzwords…)
