Hi Ben,  
A friend was just telling me that he's got great fruitset this spring but has seen few bees and lots of flies.  
Any idea how much pollen flies (especially syrphid flies) carry compared to bees since the flies are less hairy? Is it far less or just a little less? I haven't been able to notice while watching them.
