Speaking of Bees

This bee post brings us slightly below the hairline… to the ears.  I read a little while ago that a study out of India correlated the decline in bees with the increase of cell phone usage.  It’s not to difficult to believe that the radio waves coming from mobile phones are disrupting bees’ navigational abilities. 

If more studies support this theory, I will have to think twice before making a call on my mobile.  I can’t imagine a world without bees (well, I don’t think there would be much of a living world!)

On a positive note, there is a chance that we can change the frequency of the radio waves so that they don’t impede the worker bees’ ability to find the hive.
