    With 5G are we facing an insect apocalypse?

    The other day a message (below) was circulated online by Arthur Firstenberg. As it supposedly happened in Melbourne I decided to do a ‘fact check’ for possible fake news. I managed to contact the person that Arthur mentions (Angela) and yes it certainly appears that this was a real event – with enormous implications. Her neighbours have observed the same thing in their gardens (no insects) and some are also complaining about tinnitus and a sensation of “pressure in the head” since last November. But perhaps it is just not 5G to consider. What about 4G LTE as well?

    Now Rodney Croft and Co. at ACEBR may well claim its all just a neigbourhood nocebo effect with the neighbours expressing their 5G fears with each other over the back fence. As for the bees, however, perhaps they have overheard the humans talking about 5G health issues and are now dying of worry?

    Try that one on, Rodney…

    If, it soon becomes apparent that 5G mmWaves have a specially bad effect on insects that will be a hard one to hide, or explain away. Telstra has been doing research on how 5G mm waves are effected by Australian gum trees but who is going to research whether or not the 5G waves effect insects?

    On November 19, 2019, a 5G antenna was placed 250 meters from Angela”s house in Melbourne, Australia. “I photographed the new mast going onto the cell tower,” she writes, “and the next day, I was in the driveway talking to our carpenter, and we saw bees dropping on the driveway then dying. I managed to film one trying to collect pollen, but it was hanging upside down and could not seem to make it to the centre of the flower, then it rolled off the petals to the ground.”

    Today, two months later, their beautiful garden, full of old world trees and plants, is silent and barren. “We have no insects — none,” wrote Angela last week. “Our cumquat once laden all year has no new fruit coming. No olives on the way on our olive tree so laden last year. We dug soil yesterday — no worms either — nothing — all gone. I walked the dog late tonight, it was dark and a poor magpie was down the street under a street lamp hoping for a cricket I think. It was silent. I took birdseed back but the bird had gone — it must be hungry to be out at night.”
