bees stories

Despite the Doctor's supposition (Doctor Who, The Stolen Earth) that the bees were led off planet by wavelengths in the Tandocca Scale, it seems the answer is more terrestrial. A new study by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology reports that honeybees are "fatally confused by the electromagnetic signals coming out of cellphones."
We've heard a lot about the decline of bees in recent years. And while the causes are not yet fully understood, a group of people in England came up with a solution: a "refueling and nesting center" for bees. That's right, just like that bird feeder in your yard, this little contraption will help bees survive when they can't find a natural habitat.
