Abstract: The object of this study was to determine some behaviour patterns regarding biological-rearing status of honeybee colonies situated at different distances from two mobile phone base stations in field conditions. Electric field strength measured at each location was: 1.0 V/m (location O); 0.027 V/m (location H); 0.065 V/m (location K), respectively and the frequency was the same for all locations at 937.5 MHz. During observation of experimental honeybee colonies, the following biological aspects were recorded: colony strength, presence of queen cells, aggressiveness and composure of adult bees on combs as behavioural parameters. Assigned mean values for observed parameters show that at beginning of experiment honeybees were distress and within time they moderated described behavioural modality.
