I had thought that the possibility that cell phones are causing Colony Collapse Disorder in honey bees was common knowledge. A conversation with my sister (who was on her cell phone of course) clued me in to the fact that it wasn’t.
Honey bee populations have suddenly begun to decline, and some British researchers think the proliferation of cell phones is a contributing cause.
A limited study at Landau University has found that bees will abandon their hives when cell phones are turned on and placed next to them.
If cell phones are to blame, will you hang yours up for good?
