Pollination happens in multifarious ways. Pollen can transfer from one flower to another with or without any external help. Generally, plants rely on insects or the wind to pollinate them. When animals such as bees, butterflies, moths, flies, and birds pollinate plants, it's unintentional. They are not working for purpose of pollination of the plants. They sit on the flowers to feed themselves and the sticky pollen gets stuck to their legs which are later on carried to the stigma of another flower. Most of the times brightly colored flowers having a strong fragrance attract the natural pollinators. Another means of pollination of plants may involve the wind and water. In wind pollination, the wind picks up pollen from one plant and blows it onto another. Similarly, with the water pollination pollens flows from female to male plant. Because of some unknown reason the population of bees has drastically reduced and continue to exterminate, many researchers and scientists are worried about the crop pollination. Artificial pollinators are being thought of as a successful milestone to achieve intentional pollination side by side looking to the solution of bee’s demise. This paper focuses on various impediments in the development of drone-pollinator-bees and their working as a farmer friend in absence of natural bees. It also elaborated that, drone bees are capable of reaching aloof areas such as under water, places with less flower population etc. for the intention to attain successful self or cross pollination.
