Mobile Phone Towers: A Big Threat To Honey Bees

According to a research published in India, the electromagnetic waves mobile phone towers and cell-phones emit can be hazardous to honey bees.beePollen

Researchers made an experiment in southern state of Kerala. They observed that a rapid decrease in the bee population was the result of mobile towers which the mobile phone companies had installed throughout the state to broaden their networking.

These towers are emitting the electromagnetic waves all the time which cripple the “navigational skill” of the working class of bees known as worker bees. This is the group which actually collects nectar from flowers to sustain bee colonies. Dr. Sainuddin Pattazhy – who conducted the research work –tells all that as reported by Press Trust of India news agency.tower bee

They placed a mobile phone near a beehive and observed that the worker bees lost their way to back home. There left only the queens and eggs and colony was collapsed within ten days.

More than 100,000 people in Kerala depend on apiculture field. The worker bee population is gradually decreasing in this region which is a threat to their livelihood. The bees are one big factor involved in pollination of flowers which sustain vegetation.

Pattazhy is afraid that increasing number of towers and cell phones will wipe out honey bee in next ten years.

  1. There have been studies on electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and effects on bees dating back 30 years.
    The studies show that bees are highly sensitive to the EMR environment.
    Bees use the earth’s natural magnetic field to navigate.
    The radiation from the towers causes interference and so they lose their way.
    They also communicate by vibrating the hive and again the radiation causes interference.
    Microwave radiation from cell phone towers has also been shown to disrupt the immune system thus allowing other toxins and parasites to over come the bee in a way that would not have been possible previously.

    Please take time to read the evidence from the following web sites:

    Decline of bees, UK and worldwide

    * The Kompetenz initiative writes urgently to bee associations and beekeepers and explains about EM fields and bee colony collapse

    * Birds, Bees and Mankind: Destroying nature by ‘electrosmog’, Dr Ulrich Warnke. A very significant researched publication, and presented at a conference at the Royal Society, Sept 2008..
