Could the signals from cell phones be killing bees?

There is an interesting post over at Sign of the Times, It’s Official- Cell Phones are Killing Bees, which might shed some light on the bee die offs being seen around the world. Even if it is not the ultimate cause, the effects of cell phone signals on bees described in the article are disturbing and our use of them should be carefully considered. And me with a new 2-year contract…

Scientists may have found the cause of the world’s sudden dwindling population of bees – and cell phones may be to blame. Research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland has shown that the signal from cell phones not only confuses bees, but also may lead to their death. Over 83 experiments have yielded the same results. With virtually most of the population of the United States (and the rest of the world) owning cell phones, the impact has been greatly noticeable.

  1. And here I was pretty convinced it was Monsanto killing honeybees. I wonder if anyone has done any studies on that?

    • Aloha Mary Ann, let’s not rule Monsanto out. I still have confidence they have a hand in this. Personally I think it is a combination of things and hopefully at some point someone will figure out the combination and then we can fine some ropes and some strong trees. 🙂

  2. It would not be surprising that bees are sensitive.

    There is a trend that we are losing our bees..here in North America unless we deliberately cultivate them. 🙁

  3. Just hopped over to take a look at your blog (you were recently *very* sweet and patient with someone over at the wp.com forums, so I wanted to see who this “tsp” person was).

    I have to say, I will no longer complain about lack of a cell signal when I visit my parents out in the mountainous boonies! There’s very poor cell coverage for most of the county, and none here. I see a LOT of bees of all sorts, including huge honeybees, and I’ve been pleased to see almost as many butterflies as I used to see when I was a kid living in a small, new, almost-rural suburb.

    If cell signals kill bees, or at least are detrimental to them, I’m perfectly happy to forego coverage . . . at least when I’m here! (Why do we love these bits of technology — or, in my case, have a love-hate relationship with them?)

    Very interesting article! Thanks for bringing this info to others’ attention! Aloha!

  4. It seems to me, from reading various articles, since the dawn of the age of electronic communication certain groups of animals have been affected by the signals emitted. It would not surprise me at all, cellphones adversely influencing the honeybees behavior. We have to find ways to correct the harm before it is too late…

  5. Hi SacredPath…
    The cellphone theory makes sense. And an alternative to honey, which is cruelty to bees, really -is agave nectar.

    I have a question and thought of you, not sure where to post it:
    Have you heard of Martin Prechtel? He’s a shaman and someone referred me to a book he wrote. I remember that you were into shamanism.

    Thanks 😉

  6. Just like MMADfan I also hopped over to take a look at your blog from the wp.com forum, and I found this information to be very interesting.

    Also: thanx for tips at the forum 🙂

  7. Kind of makes a person wonder what else cell phone signals affect… doesn’t it?

  8. Well, it not a revelation.
    It was well-known even before cellular phones.
    And not even from tele-com sources but from any high-voltage electricity-transmitting cables

    And it is not so much from phones as from re-transmitting towers.
    And not only for bees but for all living, including plants.

    I, for example, do not have cellular phone for already 4+ years but I am still the victim of #civilization@

  9. Yeah … there are a lot of bad ideas produced by the industrial revolution that seem to be stuck with us now. I wonder, though. I held out against cell phones for years and now think that, once this one dies, I won’t get another.

    Nice to see this confirmed. Thank you!

  10. Thanks for the help. Problem solved
    I like others was drawn to your blog and will in fact follow your up dates via your rss.
    Interesting posts and equally interesting comments
    Thanks
