Cell phones signals are killing bees

A study by Swiss researcher Daniel Favre shows that mobile phone-generated electromagnetic fields may contribute to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), a condition that causes worker bees to desert the hive. In most cases, the queen bee is left with eggs, immature bees, and a lot of honey. The colony survives for a short time, but soon dies out without its workers.

"Researcher Daniel Favre of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology has found that wireless signals cause honeybees to become so disoriented that they finally just die."

Quote from Husaria:

"It is doing the same thing in humans!

Texting while driving.
Wandering aimlessly around the supermarket on the cell phone
Talking on the cell while supposedly working out at the gym
Talking on the cell phone while using a public bathroom
Talking on the cell phone while being rung up at the register, never acknowledging the cashier
Cop directing traffic, talking on the cell phone.
Couple holding hands, walking down street, both on the cell phone.

Yup, its confusing and killing humans as well!"

Daniel Favre just added a comment a few minutes ago to our article on his research, on GenevaLunch, saying he'd like to see more research done on transmitters, too.

Re: Cell phones signals are killing bees

What a load of bollocks!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colony_collapse_disorder
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pestici...lapse_disorder

Daniel Favre hasn't considered that collapsed hives are still full of food! The bee life cycle begins with work at home followed by field work.
Theoretically: if all the bees fly away there would only be young ones left, which later grow up and produce more young. Do they leave as well? -No

There are bees left in the hive, just not enough for the long term future as the queen stops laying when she sees the problem, and so conserves the food.

The syndrome includes the sudden factor. We have had mobile phones and similar radio frequencies for emergency services, for dozens of years, yet "sudden hive collapse" is fairly new.

Last night the subject was aired on on UK TV, ending with a claim that the bee parasites were the problem (http://www.loudounbee.org/reports/BPMS.htm ) unfortunately this theory fails as the mites were around a long time before arriving in UK about 10 years ago. Sick bees die in the hive, they don't all disappear at the same time.

Australia has no mites and mobile phones, but no sudden deaths. Europe & USA has both mites and phones. The problem is world wide, not just where there are UMTS phones.

The obvious culprit is the European chemical industry. They have produced an insecticide for the maize crop (a.k.a. Indian corn), which bees do not visit for food, but probably fly above on their way to the foraging areas. This kills them quickly and they do not return to their hive.

Well, who needs science when you have certainty!
