BEE SHOCKED!

Have you ever heard the hum of a power line? When high voltage electricity runs through an electrical wire it can cause it to vibrate. We can hear that vibration as the wire bounces back and forth moving the air around it. Although the sound of an electrical wire may not impact us, the magnetic field might! Any electrical current that passes through a wire makes a magnetic field. Researchers have found that this field may have bad effects on bees. The bees that were exposed to high voltage lines had less successful behaviors in finding pollen and in defending their hives. If electrical lines affect bees, what do they do to us?
