Mechanical pollination is already a thing for a while now dude. People are already investing a lot of money for the technology to replace bees. In the future, we will "bend" nature, not the other way around.

vanilla has been artificially pollinated since an at the time slave (Edmond Albius) created a technique to artificially pollinate its flowers (when he was just 12 years old) which made the crop incredibly profitable afterwards

a lot of fruits grown in places without their natural pollinators are also artificially pollinated
