There is no clearer writing on the wall than the simultaneous event of CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) on 4 different continents at the same time. Bees, birds, lizards and other insects and animals use magnetite to find their hives, nests, and general migratory paths and navigation. This magnetite aligns with the natural electromagnetic grid of the earth. It is easily thrown off kilter by man made electromagnetic fields and radiation and therefor now just as deadly to these species as it is to our own. Although as usual the telcom industry has flooded both the internet and the actual bee keeping industry with all kinds of non EMR related information on why CCD has become such a monstrous and rampant problem in the past few years. The fact of the matter is it is a bad PR problem for them, not an actual problem which needs to be remedied. Please click on some of the below links to find out more about yet another EMR related hazard.

A study from Germany (Wellenstein 1973) which showed that bees, when subjected to ELF electromagnetic fields stopped making honey, sealed up their hives in mid season and therefore committed social suicide was accepted by bee keeping associations throughout Europe within a few years. And indeed it was quoted authoritatively by a local inspector to a Fishpond villager whose bees had become so savage and unproductive that they had to be moved 20 miles away – where they thrived once more His findings and subsequent related work by Dr Cyril Smith (Smith and Baker 1982) seem relevant to the earlier and more generally accepted studies on bees and homing pigeons, both of which are known to have receptors which are able to sense the Earth’s magnetic field and its variations, which they use to help direct their survival behavior.
