Dear Mr. Dick: I saw the picture of Barry's
wintering bees. I do not see any evidence of high voltage
powerlines or cellular antennae, etc. [ I now can't locate
the picture of Barry's bees which are shown in what appears to be a
snow-covered pasture, garden or yard w/pine trees but am copying info
re your site here: http://www.honeybeeworld.com/contactme/contactme.htm
As a non-accredited EMF/EMR researcher for over 15 years, I am
interacting with persons from around-the-world who are extremely
worried about the "disappearing bees."
I was searching for information re the bee problem in Niagara
region although any other area reporting problems with bees returning
to hives is also of interest to me. I assume the picture on
your site may be from the Alberta, B.C. area?
If you can help by commenting in regard to any of the points
below, I would appreciate it very much!!! If you can't
spare the time and/or can forward my email to someone else involved
with Honeybee World and/or other beekeeper organizations, I thank you
very much for taking the time to do that!!!
Many persons believe the frequencies due to mobile/cell phone
usage may be largely responsible for interferring with communication
signals in brains of bees. While this may be possible, I am
interested in learning about how many of the beekeepers who are
reporting problems, may have an electric fence close to their hives
and/or who may use a generator on-the-ground close to hives while using
blowers to move the bees?
I don't expect you to have such statistics but am interested in
the exposures I mention plus any other electromagnetic field/radiation
exposure possibilities other than the sun (of course).
I note the picture on your site (access info above) shows three
men who are apparently using some sort of commercial-type blower
evidentally for purpose of moving the bees off the honey/frame.
If this picture is yours -- the equipment and all, would you please let
me know if some sort of inverter or generator is close by?
I just located info re ventilation fans and am pasting a paragraph
from the website here:
"......It is popular in some areas to recommend a ventilation hive
cover to aid the bees in their effort to remove moisture from the
hive. You can even buy hive covers with built in fans
Bees really didn't need them until someone decided that a beekeeper
might be willing to pay 100 dollars plus for one if they believed that
the cover might increase honey production by a third. Not
many beekeepers use them
and we don't recommend them
You might want to drill a 1/2" hole in the upper corner of your hive
bodies. That works..." [ Emphasis added ....only small
portion of website copied: http://www.gobeekeeping.com/LL%20Lesson_twelve.htm
commercial beekeepers use ventilation fans or is usage more
popular in certain localities??? ..... jcm 4-17-07...]

One can buy a commercial bee blower or make one from a leaf
blower. In principal, you are blowing bees out of the honey
super. The super is elevated on a bench or some kind of stand,
and the nozzle of the blower is run across the frames of the super to
remove the bees. This is used by many commercial beekeepers.
It is fast and does a good job in both hot or cool temperatures.
Although the bees fill the air and form clusters on the ground, they
don't seem to become overly aggressive. They are disoriented and by the time they collect themselves, they
try to find their way back to the hive......"
[ Emphasis added.....the blowing process itself is said to cause
"disorientation." Certainly ANY additional stress emanating
from EMF/EMR sources such as generators or inverters, etc. or EMF's
from the blower itself, will add additional stress and most likely will
interfere with subtle communications within brains of
Re the www.gobeekeeping.com
website (above reference)," I notice the paragraph re "fume
boards." Do you or others belonging to "Honeybee World" know how
common the use of fume boards may be? The information
indicates the bees rush to get away from the oder and that "it really
stinks...." Perhaps, such chemical exposure along or in
combination with potential worrisome EMF/EMR exposures, including the
sun, high voltage powerlines, cell phone signals, cellular antennae,
WiFi are casing disorientation of bees? Maybe the chemical as
well as the EMF/EMR "accumulates" in the bees' brains as a free
radical? In other words, perhaps many bees may function o.k.
after one or two such combination exposures, or the
chemical alone, but soon are so disoriented, they just
die? Maybe they are hitting their heads as they evacuate
the hive? Mild TBI?
The Koblenz study (Germany) confirmed bees do not return to hives
after placing a DECT phone under hives. Access to
translation of study can be found on Omega's World News site: http://freepage.twoday.net/stories/3112714/
Off subject of bees -- my two grandsons were diagnosed
with rare immune deficiencies. They "got well" after we
moved their beds away from bedroom walls opposite electric
meters. My husband was diagnosed w/Alzheimers. I moved his
electric clock radio and transformer box for cordless phone away from
behind head of his bed and he has now improved in three parts of his
Executive Function. Bud also is now said not to have Alzheimers
afterall...... I also conducted guinea
pigs studies by placing their cage against wall opposite electric
meter. One out of each set of two died in 30 days. They
developed asthma and white blood counts indicated severe neutropenia,
lymphocytosis and hypersegmented neutrophils (markers for irradiation).
Basically, frequencies that are "out-of-sync" with one's
body -- human or not, will cause any number of problems due
to interference/disruption of intracellular communications.
Chronic, prolonged exposures also promote inflammation -- the
beginning of the sort of changes that lead to the precancerous process.
My appeal to the Alzheimers' Association has been
If fluctuating waveforms/frequencies can cause Alzheimers in a
human, it is not a "stretch-of-the-imagination" to assume EMF/EMR is
most likely related to the very serious decline in the honeybee
