Personally, I wouldn't give up flossing my teeth with Publix brand waxed mint floss based on research as badly done as this, much less something
It's hard to explain just how BAD this paper is unless you've participated in some actual research. Seriously, I've seen the local high school
science fair pop out better work, which, given it's Escambia county, is pretty harsh.
More meaningful research would not only include a much better experimental setup than this, but also might attempt to explain why the authors think
that 900MHz is magical - if bees respond to radio signals in some way, why think that the frequencies used by GSM cell phones are alone in causing
problems? If you're going to go down that road, there's a big spectrum of radio transmissions you'll need to examine. The real problem might be
airport radar, or TV stations, or police radios. There's very little of US radio spectrum space that's lying around fallow, it might be different in
India, but there's a metric s--theap of radio frequency sources around, any of which COULD be the culprit, if you're going to make the statement
that bees respond adversely to low level EM waves.
