Do Peas need pollination, no they don't because they can self pollinate but I have seen both Bumblebees and Honeybees on the nearby Pea field.
And this makes me think about the allowed use of Neonicotinoid pesticides on crops not pollinated by the bees. Many here believe that bees don't fly on Pea flower but as you can see on this photos I took yesterday THEY DO ;)

The good news is that he isn't using Neonicotinoids on his fields, but an insecticide used by organic farmers (forgot the name, something with P).
So far I see no dead bees in front of the hives. Lets hope it stays this way.
