Honeybee Pollination Services at Risk Due to Electromagnetic Fields from Electrical Towers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – A new study published in Science Advances reveals that electromagnetic fields (EMF) emanating from electrical towers disrupt pollinating honeybees, leading to reduced flower visits and potentially decreased plant reproduction. 

The multi-institutional team of biologists and ecologists from Chile and Argentina conducted experiments that demonstrated that the EMF from electrical towers impacted honeybees’ stress levels and gene expressions. 

The research suggests that the presence of electrical towers may have a detrimental effect on honeybee pollination services, and by extension, the surrounding plant community. 

The study highlights the need for further investigation into the effects of EMF on pollinators and ecosystems.
