yes.....we see.....we are simply discussing other possible reasons.
And yet, I've written to a variety of people on this subject, experts. Here's one email I wrote on April 11th.
I was looking into the problem of Colony Collapse Disorder in honey bees and found something written by yourself in the May/June 1980 issue of American Scientist.
If your idea is correct and the "magnetic-sampling" section of a honey bee's abdomen is a half an inch in length, this would correspond with a quarter-length antenna tuned to 5.6Ghz (or "wi-fi" in the IEEE 802.11a range). It's possible that wi-fi, cellphone or the new digital television signals are--to the bee's navigational magnetic grains--acting in the same way that a microwave oven agitates the droplets of water in food. (In fact, the range 2.4Ghz for 802.11 itself was chosen because this is the same frequency that's used by microwave ovens.)
There are less than 10% of the bee population from the 1950s from what I understand. If we continue to lose bees at this rate we ourselves could be extinct given our reliance upon them as pollinators.
Given your credentials and experience, perhaps your time looking at this might be beneficial to the planet.
(I've unsubscribed to the various threads I've posted. It's taking too much of my time away from work for all these notifications.)
Keep in mind they put the phones in very close proximity or right next to the hive(s), so no I do not see the phones being the cause. They are crasping for straws here...
In search of the real truth.
It's just another thing big corporations and the government f*cked up and they're trying to blame on us. Like the recession.

87% + 23% = 110%The national analysis found that the relative abundances of four of the eight species analyzed have declined by as much as 96 percent and that their surveyed geographic ranges have shrunk by 23 to 87 percent. Some of these contractions have occurred in the last two decades.
either someone had a mathematical error, or they're talking out of their arse...
lol in all seriousness though, I don't think cellular phones are the cause... I think it's a mix of natural causes, and pesticides... They test the cell phone right underneath the hive, why not go a distance?? The average cell phone user doesn't chill underneath the hive all day... they're walking about n such, mostly in populous areas... so the nearest hive may be quite the distance...
it would be interesting to see if they react the same way when a call is made meters away, or near a phone tower...
