By the way this is completely false. Neither the article you posted nor the study performed in Germany produced this result. The original theory was that the EMF from cordless phones was preventing bees from finding their way back the hive. It was never speculated that they were repelling the bugs outright. Why don't you read about what your arguing before you start defending it?
