What is your opinion on pollinating trees this way?

Looks pretty cool, but I think they should be researching bees and helping them populate instead of soap pollination. Just my 2 cents lol

Might be useful to replace hand pollination but will never beat the bees .

Food flies are my best friend now.  I only saw couple bees in my yard for this year so far.
