I just read the craziest suggestion ever to explain colony collapse disorder
Or is it?
Colony collapse disorder is another issue I blabber about to anyone who will listen. I remember the first time I heard about it was on the way to work in an interview with May Berenbaum (Go Illini!!) on NPR.
The first thought that ran through my head was the possible impact of electromagnetic radiation on the bee’s ability to navigate. When I got to a computer, it didn’t take long to determine that electromagnetic radiation can in fact impact the ability of the bee to navigate similar to the way some birds use the earth’s magnetic field for navigation.
