Befuddled Again

Before you read this post I recommend that you read Honey Bees And Cell Phone, A Go Go, if you haven’t yet. That’s alright I’ll wait until you are done….

This morning when I was checking Google News, this headline caught my attention: “Weather May Account for Reduced Honey CropBee from the Washington Post. Another theory on the disappearance of the Honey Bee. This one is being reported a bit different by the Washington Post, they are saying that the weather may account for reduced honey crop. This is one of the few reports where they are reporting theories as such and not as fact.

After reading the story I think that the weather is one of several reasons for the disappearance of the honey bees. Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus is another cause in my opinion. The more I think about it cell phones are also a cause. Just think about it: You are driving your car down a highway and you cell rings. You answer it. While you are distracted by the conversation, a bee is splattered on your windshield. You and the cell phone are the cause of the disappearance of the honey bee.

That is my take on it.

p.s. Next we’ll be told that the iPod is the cause for the disappearance of the bees.
