We don't have honeybees here either but a few bumble bees and a few 
smaller native bees seem to do enough pollinating to set enough pears 
that they need to be thinned some years. It's early but I can now easily 
see which tiny pears were pollinated and which will drop. It looks like 
a good pear year here.
