Comments to: Millions of Bees Die - Are Electromagnetic Signals To Blame?

The electromagnetic radiation theory for the disappearing bees sounds reasonable except for a couple of things. Unless I have misunderstood, this loss of bees is a fairly new phenomenon where as the radiation has been going on for quite a while. Also, the EMF problem exists in many countries but the bees are only disappearing in the US. Perhaps the bee loss is caused by several factors working synergistically.

Bonita,

it is true we know very little at this point.

I feel that electromagnetic phenomena may be a good area to look into because of the inherent secrecy surrounding them and the chance that a new type of modulation could be added without anyone public knowledge.

Other factors that have been cited, such as pesticides, seed treatment chemicals, and genetically modified crops lack the feature of a possible recent change affecting all of the US, and only the US, without similarly affecting other countries.

I hope more people looking into this will bring out more clues.

My little Bee/GWEN post at Alien Earth continues to evolve - first at STA and now courtesy of Sepp Hasslberger.

While the GWEN system has been in place for some time, it is only recently that it has turned to transmitting frequencies that disorient the bee population. The PTB inches this thing forward in small steps to allow for the forgetfulness of the population. The objective of course is the wholesale elimination of the honeybee, permitting the introduction of new GM seeds that require no pollination to reproduce since they simply do not reproduce. This places the seed source to feed millions in the hands of a small number of very troubled people. The seed that they dispense will not only feed us [and our meat sources] but also destroy our health along the way. Sound like some movie scenario? We only have to wait and see.

In the meantime, you can kiss good-bye almonds, walnuts, avocado and any number of other ‘seed’ fruits.

For those not willing to wait, the answer is to continue to bring this issue into the Internet light in the hopes of waking up the sleeping masses to the threats that lay before them.

Sepp and others are doing just that.

No possible explanation can be dismissed. A man-made one is likely, although natural causes may also be found. People mislead their own lives. Parents mislead families. Company leaders mislead companies. Government leaders mislead their people. It is not inconceivable that the madmen tinkering with electronics have blinders on to the side-effects of some technology, some experiment, or would deliberately do something stupid. There have always been stupid people who mislead us into situations we do not wish to be in. In fact, that's the definition of misleadership. So, we'll continue monitoring the phenomenon, searching for the cause, seeking the solution. Judging from what we know to be true about man's misleadership and blundering, no possibility is too bizare to be the truth.

The bee die off has been going on for many years, but the recent acceleration appears to follow the massive universalisation of mobile communications in general.

Also, this is not a US problem: throughout Europe the same thing is happening.

See our page at http://www.hese-project.org/hese-uk/en/issues/emr.php?id=bees

There are several very interesting aspects relating EM fields to bees that suggests this playing a part. Watch our page, it is still developing.

Jerry Bromenshenk at the University of Montana has been modifying bee behaviour to detect certain chemicals...like explosives, for example. DARPA, SNL and LANL have sponsored research to use bees for sniffing out bombs or landmines. If the bees are conditioned to find such chemicals, why then would they seek the nectar of blossums or want to return to the hive. The bees are missing, not dead in big numbers around the hives. If they were being infected by mites, molds, fungus, or pesticides we would see their dead little bodies all over. No, these bees are addicted like cocaine addicts and fly around seeking out those chemicals until they die of starvation. It is high time we stop messing with nature.

Hi
Your piece on bees was interesting. Millions of Bees Die - Are Electromagnetic Signals To Blame?

However the problem of bee loss is worldwide and not just confined to the USA

German researchers think it is the radiation emitted from the mobile phone and WIMAX masts which are virtually now saturating our environments. Dr Warnke in Germany has done much work on it. There may be several mechanisms but it seems the low frequency 'pulse' carried along the high frequency wave is disrupting the bees cell communication systems.

Also there is a dipole effect from the alternating magnetic field component and perhaps the flux density disturbance (from interference of several sources of EMF's) of the earth's magnetic
field.

See our site below:
http://www.hese-project.org/hese-uk/en/issues/nature.php

This is of extreme concern since Einstein said that if the bees vanish then all life on Earth has 4 years left to live!

Yours
Sarah

Dear Sarah,

thank you for your comment, and I think you are making a good point with which I tend to agree.

I see that the situation is not restricted to the US, although perhaps it is more pronounced there - at least in this time period. Or do we perhaps hear more about the US situation because of a lazy press that reports on what is casually put before it, rather than on what the reporters themselves research and uncover?

The low frequency pulse of mobile communications, which is in the 200 - 220 cycles-per-second range, the frequency with which "packets" are sent by the digital communication equipment, is also the frequency which the bees themselves produce:

http://jeb.biologists.org/cgi/reprint/199/12/2585.pdf

http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=7539367

http://hypertextbook.com/facts/1999/MichelleFinnegan.shtml

According to Randolph Post, an average worker bee in flight produces a sound near middle B (250Hz). That would seem very close indeed to the tact frequency of packages in mobile phone transmissions and may well produce some interference.

Of course there may be other mechanisms, but this would be appear a good candidate for some urgent research.

Hi
Here\'s some info on Italian and British bees disappearance. i think the USA does not report on other country\'s bee problems!! But then neither does the UK.

You should find out when the phone masts started going up in the USA and see if that correlates with the problem? ...here the 2G masts started in 1992. In 2002 we started to get 3G and last year WIMAX (the more powerful wifi transmitters) were rolled out into the countryside.

Best Regards
Sarah

Putin Orders Russian ‘Queens’ Home, Decimates US Bee Industry

Now, it is very important to understand that these bees are not dead, or dying, they are simply ‘disappearing’, and which led me to remember my studies under Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev in the 1980’s, and where a great deal of Soviet effort was then being put into the saving of the American domestic bee industry due to devastating losses caused by varroa mites.

There is one new aspect of the radio frequency theory that I have not seen discussed as yet. High Def radio has only recently been introduced for wide spread use, this is a whole new spectrum of RF that could cause havoc with the bees navigation. Any and all theories should be investigated, this is a problem of of possible biblical proportions.

Bill, (or anyone else out there who might know) -

how is High Def Radio, or for that matter, HDTV, different from the traditional analog signals.

Are they modulated in "packets" like mobile telephones, and if so, what is the tact frequency of those packets ?

This is disturbing. To think that a pesticide could be doing it. To think that our new wave of communication technology could be doing it. To this that perhaps its a plot or conspiracy by GM, to control the seeds of teh food chain.. All of it adds up to a rather chilling sci-fi like scenario that reminds me eerily of a movie..

I'm in PA and have read the local reports by the researchers at PSU. Your theory is very interesting but unfortunately there is a major component to which you appear to not be aware. That is that the bees themselves have suffered intestinal damage. Upon forensic examination of the bees they are finding their digestive tracts ruined on about 90 of the bees along with cellular damage elsewhere. Draw your conclusions. Personally I prefer blaming it on what appears to be radiological damage. Not sure where the radiation would have come from though.

The Bees have Antennas on their heads and "magnetic material in the bodies of the bee that could be disturbed by bee cloning causing a problem in the ability of the bees mechanism in orientation."

Wake Up Call, Colony Collapse Disorder

Many animals have been found dead in the past ten years, Dogs, Cows, Birds in various countries. Some deformed. Some with what was believed to be a new desease, but it is really just exposure to cell phone and wifi microwave radiation.

Unfortunately, according to Wikipedia, GWEN is no longer functional. The military now uses MILSTAR...

Even if GWEN is somehow still secretly operational, it first came online in 1980. Why do the bees suddenly have trouble today? While I won't rule out electromagnetic, I can't see how GWEN has anything to do with it.

 

Posted on April 15, 2007, 5:13 am
by Sepp

You may well be right, David.

It seems that GWEN, while officially dead, is still being operated. But I can't say that the problem comes from that particular program. It might be a contributing factor.

There is now a lot of news that the same or similar disasters are happening in other countries.

So perhaps a more likely candidate for the trouble is the ever increasing penetration of cell phone radiation with relay towers just about ubiquitous everywhere.

The phone radiation is pulsed at 220 cycles (packets) per second which brings it into close proximity of the native frequency of the bees. The hum of their wings is in the frequency range of 190 to 250 cycles per second.

The news is filtering out into the mainstream. See this latest article:

Are mobile phones wiping out our bees?
It seems like the plot of a particularly far-fetched horror film. But some scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food shortages, as the world's harvests fail.

They are putting forward the theory that radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world - the abrupt disappearance of the bees that pollinate crops. Late last week, some bee-keepers claimed that the phenomenon - which started in the US, then spread to continental Europe - was beginning to hit Britain as well.

The theory is that radiation from mobile phones interferes with bees' navigation systems, preventing the famously homeloving species from finding their way back to their hives. Improbable as it may seem, there is now evidence to back this up.

HAARP's final level of installation went online I believe in May of last year. Could that be the new factor that explains why now for the bee's disappearance?

Is this another sign we are at the end? I am so tired to be scared every day by a new catastrophe. Humans seem to be unable or unwilling to understand we are running on the fast lane towards our self destruction. We have always been a very self destructive species (our world wars should be an example), but normally there was a place for people only seeking for peace. Now there is no place where to hide, nor hopes left. Maybe we should just make it faster, cleaner and estinguish before destroying the whole world.

Most bee hives sustain their bees through the winter using corn syrup. This year would be the first winter where "most" of the corn is GMO.

Sorcha Faal's article above suggests that Russia placed their em sensitive queens in the American market because the U.S. would not negotiate a peace treaty back in the 70's. Anybody here read Alternative 3?

Many bee dieoff variables may be interacting: available at the link below and at the comments.

In the running seems to be a potential synergistic effect of many issues:

- US-centric issue, though starting to appear in other countries

- Bt GM-crops, of which the USA is chock full of...

- and Bt intentionally sprayed directly into the hive as an insecticide...

- facilitating soon afterward forms of mass autoimmune breakdown....

- and where bees don't even want to feed

- which has something to do with bees getting all at once of their typical diseases all at once, one of which is a form of navigational confusion interestingly enough

- other critters treat the empty hive oddly, as if it is poisoned, when typically other insects would want to eat the honey. Reports that it is toxic in some unknown way so far, and insects are strangely staying away from the empty hives.

- all this occurs very soon after a large varroa mite infestation, that may have weakened bees in general throughout the USA

- where bees in the hive are full of multiple infestations of fungi

It is pretty worrying. Here in South Africa I have just e mailed my friends to say cut down on cell phone use as much as possible. (Would this help at all I wonder?)I plan to alert a radio station and a few investigative newspapers. The public needs to know about this. Maybe we can get, as a start, cell phone companies to let us know what is going on.

 

Posted on April 23, 2007, 4:05 pm
by Sepp

I doubt the cell phone companies would be of much help. They have been working hard to NOT find out about and inform users of possible cell phone dangers.

Also curtailing the use of cell phones will do little to cut down the already existing radiation (at least for the insects such as bees). Most of that radiation emanates from the ubiquitous repeater antennas that cover the landscape to provide good reception for us humans.

Of course it is better for your friends to cut down on cell phone use, as it would be for anyone.

Submarines use sonar = sound waves. Apparently the sound generated by new military sonars is so loud it destroys the auditory system of sea-dwelling creatures. It's a bit different from cell phones and bees, but another thing we do without any awareness or concern for what we cause in the environment.

Blast it - we should start looking at the effects of our technologies with a bit more humility.

I have no doubt that several factors are working in sync and are to blame for the recent disappearance of bees - everything from pesticides to parasites to fungi - but I would bet my right arm that the most damaging is the electromagnetic pollution from cell phones, and even the 60hz alternating current frequency coming into our homes on a daily basis. Even if scientists prove that a mite or a type of fungus or some other parasite is causing the bees to get sick, I believe that the electromagnetic chaos is what is essentially causing these organisms to cross the blood-brain barrier in the first place.

Have you read 'Cross Currents' and 'The Body Electric' by Robert Becker? Both are excellent books on the subject.

What's interesting is that I have Lyme Disease - chronic Lyme, to be exact - and nothing seems to be helping. I have reached a plateau it seems, and I've been on every antibiotic known to mankind. What makes Lyme so difficult to cure is that the spirochete is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, along with toxins and metals which normally are off limits to those areas. Manmade EMFs are known to cause pathogens to cross the blood-brain barrier and to cause such things as microorganisms, parasites, and cancer cells to reproduce at alarmingly accelerated rates. The human immune system cannot keep up with the surge of microorganisms, and apparently these bees seem to have some sort of fungus commonly found in cancer and AIDS patients, too.

I'm worried that scientists are too focused on solving health conditions with 'chemicals' - antibiotics, for example - closing their eyes to what is staring them right in the face. The only solution is to get rid of this electromagnetic chaos surrounding us before it is too late.

Chemtrails link in with HAARP, which of course brings us back to electromagnetic changes. Apparently the barium/alluminium particulate in chemtrails acts to concentrate(?) focus(?) the huge energies that are injected into the earth/ionosphere system.

There are good possibilities that the effects of HAARP and/or the chemicals in chemtrails may be to blame.

That is why we probably cannot expect any official investigation to find the real reason for what is going on - secrecy and supranational interests are at stake.

The radar you mention, Goodold, is a sonar (sound emitting) and it is quite probable that it has to do with increased deaths of whales and dolphins.

See: Dolphins Dead off Zanzibar - Is Navy Sonar to Blame?

Bees and birds seem to be more affected by the electromagnetic noise that is increasing (and has seen a more than thousandfold increase in the last decade or so) that is emitted by such things as radar, mobile phone, emergency radio and HAARP.

could someone put a probe from a network analyser/spectrum analyser or similar instrumentation into a rejected beehive to see if the materials/construction/shape could be resonating with a manmade (wireless) electromagnetic frequency from space based or other worldwide exposure capable system.

insects use electromagnetic frequencies for signalling/communication and may be repelled via this buzzz we have may have inadvertantly created in their existence????

this buzz may also have an effect on the symbiotic bacteria in their system??

These bees are dying most likely because of GMO crops as well as Aluminum Oxide and Barium substances that are being 'Crop Dusted' at high altitudes world wide.

Not quite connected with this, but a strange occurrence none the less. I have noticed( or failed to noticed) bees recently. The strange thing about them is that they weren't buzzing. I have nearly been stung several times by a bee that flew right up next to me. Usually the loud buzzing sound they make when they fly about alerts me to their presence. I don't quite understand it, but for some strange reason have been thinking a lot about it. I think it must have something to do with the fact that they are dying off, as a result of chemicals, pesticides, destruction of hives during construction and the destruction of hives too close to residences. My theory is that this is an evolutionary leap of some kind, ridiculous as it may sound. If hives didn't make the loud noise that they currently do, they would be harder to detect, for the average person. This all may sound foolish, but I thought that I had to get it down somewhere, since I searched repeatedly for this and came up dry.

The bees' buzz - interesting observation Mark.

Your observation that bees don't buzz might have something to do with the cell phone frequency of packet transfer which is somewhere close to 230 Hertz or 230 cycles per second, which - if I am not mistaken - is also in the frequency range of the buzz of the bees. Are we confusing them?

A study was done recently in India that found EMR to be a likely culprit.

Mobile phones responsible for disappearance of honey bee

The remedy would need to be found by experimenting with frequencies and especially sub-frequencies such as the 200 Hertz packet sequence that is characteristic of digital mobile phone technology.

Perhaps something as simple as randomizing the data packet frequency to make it unrecognizable as a constant frequency for biological organisms could help.

Someone needs to do some research.

Sir/Madam
My name is John Harding from Stourbridge UK

I have kept Honeybees for 30 years, inventing bee equipment in that time that I am proud to say does carry my name. I currently have an unpublished book with the answer and solution to the demise of Honeybees.

18 years ago when Varroa hit our shores I too treated with the reccomended chemicals at that time however it killed my Queens, as this was out of season virgins were unable to get mated so inevitable collapse.

From that day I vowed never to use chemicals or sugar in my hives, which grew to 300 hives up until divorse 6 years ago. I hoped that one day I would find a natural answer and solution.

This I have now done.

Honeybees have not just started dying due to the Varroa Mite or Mobile Phones or any other modern manmade product.

Honeybees have been dying for centuries, in fact, ever since mankind, yes beekeepers, tried to domesticate Honeybees to, of course, get that wonderful food, Honey.

We, beekeepers, yes and I too, are to blame, we took them away from their natural place and put them into beehives with beekeepers putting the hives where mankind wanted them.

When Varroa hit our shores it then esculated the problem to the media and mainstream public causing unnessary scaremongerring quoting Eistien even through he did`nt say it someone else did, but that is not important, the fact is that it will happen, not in 4 years but eventually due to other modern foods being avaliable.

The answer and solution is here, can anyone help with getting my book published.

I have taken my bees in their hives back to where they want and need to be to survive.

They are thriving with no Varroa and producing 2 or 3 times more honey than any other beekeeper.

I am just a passionate beekeeper that wants to be heard without the chemical industry dictating to all or most Profesors and Scientist being then biased to a chemical or bacterial answer.

My answer is natural and free and works.

My name is John Harding let me be heard.

If you have a beehive and would like to shield it from electromagnetic radiation, simply wrap it with foil.

For added protection stake a wire into the ground and connect it to your foil lining.

A large galvanized or stainless steel nail or screw hammered into the ground would do the trick. Other metals would do fine but might rust sooner. Copper and iron tend to corrode. You'd have to replace them eventually if they do.

Instead of foil, you could use a fine-mesh metal screen or some sheet metal if you so choose. I just say foil because you 'prolly already have some in your house.

Make sure it's secured so the wind doesn't blow it off, say with some weatherproof caulking or other weatherproof glue.

I would 'prolly look for something like 100 Silicone. If it says "safe for food contact" or it's made for sealing aquariums, that's cool. I'd think it to have less of the industrial solvents in there that might interfere with a bee.

If you use a metal that is prone to rust, be sure to paint it where it's exposed, but make sure the metal on the lid can touch the side without any paint in the way. Leave that bare so it makes contact.

Be sure to leave enough space for the bees to get in and out, and be certain to leave enough space for ventilation. Air is good. We don't want to suffocate them in there. They can regulate the temperature if you let them.

Bees can always fill in gaps if they need to, but they can't make the air gaps any bigger if you don't make 'em big enough to begin with. This is especially true in the wintertime, as moisture can freeze in there.

The idea of the foil wrap is that the electromagnetic radiation will stay outside of your box, especially if you connect this to the ground. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cage

If bees are using electroreception to communicate with flowers than I would hypothesize that all of the weak electromagnetic radiation generated by cell phones would likely interrupt that communication.If we look at the timing of the bees population decrease, It's right around the time cell phones became essential. Maybe we allocated the wrong frequency for cell phones and had no idea of any side effects. I Imagine a bee flying around looking for a flower and it's being blinded by the weak electromagnetic cell signals, like putting a glass of water in a swimming pool, where did it go?
