I’m getting tons of bees going through my corn, which I think (?) is a good thing. I’ve only ever known how to pollinate corn via the wind or by hand. Will bees do the trick for me? Doesn’t really appear that much is getting on my silks.

Corn is mainly wind pollinated. Bee's do not have much to do with corn pollination. Go out 2 or 3 times a day and shake the plants. To get a good ear of corn each strand of silk must be pollinated.
