Are Cell Phones Killing Bee Colonies?


The global collapse of honeybee colonies has been blamed on viruses, pesticides and global warming. Now, a study by Swiss researcher Daniel Favre claims that cell phone-generated electromagnetic fields are contributing to Colony Collapse Disorder.

CCD is a condition that causes worker bees to desert the hive. After a recent experiment Favre suggested that cell phones and cell phone towers located near beehives hamper honeybee navigation.
