    Bees are also reported to be significantly down in numbers here in Australia. I read an article in the local paper just last week which was attributing cause to the use of mobile phones – the signals are apparently disorienting the bees and they can’t find their way home.

    John, your point that the search for the cure for the honeybees may also help save other pollinating insects is a good one. I’ll explore the links on that site, thanks.

    Ainsley, I think the correlation with cell phone use is weak. Wouldn’t this problem have shown up earlier in areas where cell phone use is heavy?
