Swarming bees can potentially change the weather, new study finds

Swarming bees produce so much electricity they can affect local weather, new research has found.

The discovery, which the researchers made by measuring the electric fields around bees (apis mellifera) beehives, reveals that bees can produce as much atmospheric electricity as a thunderstorm. This can play an important role in directing dust to shape unpredictable weather; and their impact may even need to be included in future climate models.
