Study Confirms Threat To Bees From Mobile Phone Towers

Electromagnetic waves emitted by the cell phone towers crippled the “navigational skills” of the worker bees that go out to collect nectar from flowers to sustain bee colonies, said Dr. Sainuddin Pattazhy, who conducted the study.

He found that when a cell phone was kept near a beehive, the worker bees were unable to return, leaving the hives with only the queens and eggs and resulting in the collapse of the colony within ten days.

 

If towers and mobile phones further increase, honey bees might be wiped out in 10 years, Pattazhy said.
