Guy Cramer - detail of the honeybee's em sensitivity (June 2007)

(from his suggestion that the extremely high power HAARP global hf
transmitter in Alaska may be expected to affect insect behaviour)

In regards to research studies on bees, it has been determined that they
are highly sensitivity to electromagnetic interference - the following
excerpts have been compiled with links to many of these studies within
the references:

"...when proof was obtained that bees and other insects in electric
fields show changes in behavior and metabolism, the electrostatic
charges on them acquired a new significance."

…the perception of electric fields and also intra-specific communication
of social insects, and for “weather sensitivity” and orientation.

…Electrical fields in the atmosphere, electromagnetic oscillations and
atmospheric ions have become established as meteorologically correlated
factors in the insects’ habitat…

"The body surface of a bee can be divided roughly into two areas as far
as its electrical behavior is concerned. All the membranous and
glandular surfaces of the cuticula show great variations in potential,
whereas the rest of the surface is at a low potential, up to +1 v. Over
fairly short distances, there may be fairly high intensities of electric
field, 25v/0-2cm. These measurements show certain peculiarities:

(a) Static potentials can be measured only from the antennae; elsewhere
on the body there is an effect analogous to the discharge of a condenser.

(b) A bee is able to change the polarity of an antenna, completely or
partly, in less than a second. The change usually occurs just before
take-off, suggesting perhaps that this change of polarity has some
function in orientation...

(c) The bee is insulated electrically from any underlying surface by the
claw of its tarsi, but it can make electric contact with the surface by
means of the electrolyte secreted from the arolium. According to the
sign and magnitude of the potential of the underlying surface, the bee
then becomes either charged or discharged.

Every colony as a whole shows a level of charge which is characteristic
of it, depending on the strength and the amounts of brood and honey in
it,...Beyond a (measurable) distance from the entrance, the electrical
influence of the colony ceases. On days when a colony has a negative
potential, positively charged bees returning to it change their
potential from positive through zero to a negative value during flight.
On other days (when its potential is positive) those bees that have a
small positive potential increase this more and more as they approach
the colony.

It is possible to record the arrival or departure of an individual bee,
within a suitable distance of the hive entrance, by recording the change
in the potential of the colony with a sufficiently sensitive instrument.

Bees in a strong electric field became aggressive, stinging each other
to death; communication was disturbed. At still higher fields, the bees
tore out the brood from the cells, and no new brood was produced. The
bees left their hive if they could,...

Colonies subjected to electromagnetic oscillations (10-30 kHz, 800 v/m)
produce a changed pattern of sounds and their temperature increases.
Given a choice bees will evade such oscillations.

Increase concentration of atmospheric ions increases the motor activity
and also affects the water balance of the bees. Extensive electric
screening of bees by a Faraday cage reduces general activity and results
in pathological loading of the rectum.

If the ion concentration of the air is high, peak discharge currents of
about 10 x 10^8 A may occur at the antenna; these are sufficiently high
to produce physiological excitement.

Some types of behavior can be correlated with atmospheric electrical
factors. The level of electrical potential affects the ability of bees
to imbibe food. It also affects the onset and course of the flight of
young bees from the hive and also aggressivity. The fact that the bees
ability to return to their home or hive varies from time to time can be
attributed to atmospheric disturbances (electromagnetic oscillations in
the long-wavelength range).

Changes in weather and cloud formation are associated with changes in
electric potential, which produce local changes of charge both in the
individual bee and in the colony, and this could account for the bees
'recognition' of the dynamics course of weather changes. Corona
discharge due to high atmospheric field intensities (for example from
the tips of grasses and leaves) must also be taken into account: they
might produce a UV pattern visible to the bees which, being unstable in
time, could confuse their orientation."^4

Tethered honey bees (Apidea /Apis melifera/) coaxed to fly in a
miniature wind tunnel for a specific time interval, adsorb a virus
(i.e., bacteriophage MS2) aerosol at a linear rate of 1% of the aerosol
concentration for every 6.73 pC of electrostatic charge on the bee.^5

Bees have a magnetoreception system sensitive down to 26nT at 10 to 60Hz
and are more sensitive to lower frequencies.^6

Magnetic field (MF) bursts at a frequency of 250 Hz oriented parallel to
the field-lines of the EMF induce unequivocal jumps of misdirection of
up to +10°.^7

^Honey bees can be influenced non-thermally in three ways:

^First of all, the bee itself is a creature with a strictly defined
shape. So this shape can be resonantly stimulated, when the wave-length
- and so the frequency - of the radiation is in the range of the size of
the bee, As the honey bees' size is circa two centimeters, the
frequency of the resonance has to be up to 15 GHz. But Honey bees can
not only be resonantly stimulated by this strict frequency. Because
their body is extensive, can can be stimulated by a broadband of
frequencies, which borders have to be discovered experimentally. ...* *9

In an experiment with exposing bee colonies to cordless phone base
stations compared to a control group of non-exposed colonies, in
monitoring their return times to the hive: "At no time of the experiment
more than six exposed bees arrived, several times none came back to the
hive within 45 minutes, whereas at every sequence of the experiment
returning non-exposed honey bees could be observed."^10

Conclusion: The combined research on electrical interference on the
colonies and individual bee's while not exhaustive indicates that
changes even in one of the various fields; such as ionization, ion
polarity, UV corona discharge, magnetic field, low frequency
interference or high frequency resonance can have profound effects on an
insect that is A) dependent on the colony for survival and B) must move
in a x-y-z axis to not only find food but also be able to navigate back
to the same colony, a disorientation of a few degrees horizontally or
vertically can cause the returning bee to misalign, unlikely to find the
colony. This reminds me of aircraft trying to find an aircraft carrier
with only a general idea of the location, except in the case of the
aircraft pilot's they know the ship will be at sea level whereas a bee
colony can be located 30 feet up in a tree so the z axis orientation
also becomes critical. If HAARP is influencing one or more of these
required fields - which both the patent and research seems to indicate -
then it may not only be disorienting the bees' but also making them more
vulnerable to viruses and infection which is showing up in those bees
that remain at the hives which collapse.

I recommend that all ionospheric heater arrays around the world be
turned completely off for 6-12 months to see if the colonies continue to
collapse. This will determine if the connection between CCD and HAARP
and other related arrays around the world is valid. This is one of the
few cases where an off switch can be flipped to determine a possible
cause and effect relationship over such a wide area.
