These have all been operating for our entire lifetimes, yet the bee die-off has only occurred in the last year. So is radio the culprit?

Just my 5 cents worth. I know in the Rocky Mtn Area the business of Cell tower erection and construction has been an gold mine. One of the managers who used to work for my company moved on to a company which specializes in Cell tower construction, and he has been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest!
