Researchers claim they have found the cause of the decline in bees which could be the first step in reversing the decline.

The growing use of mobile telephones is behind the disappearance of honey bees and the collapse of their hives, scientists have claimed.  Their disappearance has caused alarm throughout Europe and North America where campaigners have blamed agricultural pesticides, climate change and the advent of genetically modified crops for what is now known as ‘colony collapse disorder.’ Britain has seen a 15 per cent decline in its bee population in the last two years and shrinking numbers has led to a rise in thefts of hives.
