ShungiteBeehives.com is focused on raising treatment-free bees (no chemical treatments used), in an all natural EMF & WiFi-free environment. Numerous studies have shown how harmful an EMF (Electromagnetic Field) or WiFi field can be for bees. Studies have also shown that Shungite can attenuate EMF signals & environmental radiation. Our Shungite beehives have Shungite powder mixed into their exterior paint, in addition to having Shungite nuggets placed at their entrance. Certain beehives are also given Shungite powder to walk through. When the bees walk through the Shungite powder it adheres to their legs, then is carried both inside the beehive (thus mixes w/honey stores) & outside where the bees harvest their nectar/pollen.
We have zero CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) losses since introducing Shungite to the beehives, and no losses due to disease.
We believe in Treatment-free Beekeeping (no chemicals used on beehives)
No artificial feeding (we leave the bees more than enough honey so feeding isn't necessary)
Shungite Honey is kept 100% Raw & Unfiltered to retain the honey's natural beneficial qualities!
Beehives are 20+ miles from commercial crops (to avoid pesticide contamination of honey)
What's Shungite? Why use it on beehives?
Everything on Earth has a specific vibration or frequency. All humans, animals, plants & insects have a certain vibration field which has to be maintained at specific levels to remain healthy. Our frequency means the way in which molecules or atoms of all matter “spin” around one another, as can be seen under a high-powered microscope.
NASA has been using frequency generators for decades to protect astronauts while they're away from the Earth's natural frequency source. Astronauts physical condition deteriorated while in outer space, away from the Schumann Resonance (Earth’s frequency) and while being in the presence of the strong magnetic fields of the space shuttles. This problem was solved by introducing the "Schumann Simulator" into all space shuttles, a magnetic pulse generator broadcasting the Earth's natural frequency.
Unfortunately today's technologies, such as computer monitors, laptops, tv's, radios, microwave ovens, Wi-Fi routers, smart meters & cell-phones all use electromagnetic waves in order to function.
These frequencies are extremely harmful to our natural vibrations as well as the bees vibrations. When the bees vibration field or frequency is disharmonious, their meridian clocks are disturbed, immunity is compromised, natural recovery and rejuvenation abilities are reduced & overall wellness can drop. This in turn makes the bees more susceptible to diseases & pests.
This is where Shungite comes in...
Shungite is a natural mineral made of 98% carbon. It's found in Karelia, Russia near a small settlement called Shunga. It's atoms form fullerenes which are made of 60 carbon atoms, resembling a soccer ball at the molecular scale. Shungite has been shown to attenuate toxins and radiation in it's environment by reversing the electromagnetic fields to a bio-compatible rotation. Once relieved of these harmful burdens, bees can once again function at their natural peak efficiency.
In 1991, Science magazine named fullerenes “molecule of the year,” calling them “the discovery most likely to shape the course of scientific research in the years ahead.”
Shungite has been used in medical treatment since the early 18th century. Peter the Great set up Russia's first spa in Karelia to make use of the water purifying properties of shungite, which he had himself experienced. He also instigated its use in providing purified water for the Russian army. The antibacterial properties of shungite have been confirmed by modern testing.
Russian doctors & scientist are having great success treating patients before and after surgery within rooms built from Shungite, for a variety of disorders & ailments. These Shungite rooms greatly speed the recovery and rehabilitation time patients experience. Russian & Ukrainian research has also shown that fullerene-rich Shungite attenuates numerous forms of negative energy. We're using Shungite in similar ways to enhance the health & overall well being of our bees.

How Shungite Influences Toxins, Radiation & Your Telomeres
Telomeres are what wrap the ends of chromosomes, it's what keeps them stable. The length of the Telomere is related to an organism's lifespan, as Telomeres shorten, so does that organism's lifespan. Toxic stresses have been found to be a significant cause of Telomere shortening. Shungite's help in the reducing of these toxins & radiations in the bees & their environment appears to be significant contributor to the bees increased vigor & lack of disease.
June 2, 2015 Scientific Study Extract - view study
"We further found that the consumption of bee products for a long period and frequent consumption of bee products per day are associated with telomere length. An increase of year in consuming bee products is associated with a mean increase in telomere length of 0.258 kbp. In addition, an increase in frequency of eating bee products per day was also associated with a mean increase of 2.66 kbp in telomere length. These results suggested that bee products might play some roles in telomere length maintenance."

“Conclusion: At the present time, there are reasonable grounds for believing that microwave radiation constitutes an environmental and health hazard….Concerning the exposure to electromagnetic fields, the precautionary principle is needed and should be applied to protect species from environmental non-thermal effects (Zinelis, 2010). Controls must be introduced and technology rendered safe to the environment, since this new ubiquitous and invisible pollutant could deplete the efforts devoted to species conservation.”

Cammaerts, Marie-Claire. “Is electromagnetism one of the causes of the CCD? A work plan for testing this hypothesis.”Journal of Behavior, vol. 2, no. 1, 2017, pp. 1006.
The decline of domestic bees all over the world is an important problem still not well understood by scientists and beekeepers, and far from being solved. Its reasons are numerous: among others, the use of pesticides and insecticides, the decrease of plant diversity, and bee’s parasites. Besides these threats, there is a potential adverse factor little considered: manmade electromagnetism.
The present paper suggests two simple experimental protocols for bringing to the fore the potential adverse effect of electromagnetism on bees and to act consequently. The first one is the observation of bees’ avoidance of a wireless apparatus; the second one is the assessment of colonies’ strength and of the intensity of the electromagnetism field (EMF) surrounding them. If bees avoid a wireless apparatus, if hives in bad health are located in EMF of a rather high intensity, it can be presumed that bees are affected by manmade electromagnetism. This should enable searching for palliative measures.
Goldsworthy, Andrew. “The Birds, the Bees and Electromagnetic Pollution: How electromagnetic fields can disrupt both solar and magnetic bee navigation and reduce immunity to disease all in one go.” 2009.
Many of our birds are disappearing mysteriously from the urban environment and our bees are now under serious threat. There is increasing evidence that at least some of this is due to electromagnetic pollution such as that from cell towers, cell phones, DECT cordless phones and Wifi. It appears capable of interfering with their navigation systems and also their circadian rhythms, which in turn reduces their resistance to disease. The most probable reason is that these animals use a group of magnetically-sensitive substances called cryptochromes for magnetic and solar navigation and also to control the activity of their immune systems.

“Here we use flight simulator studies to show that migrants indeed possess an inclination magnetic compass to help direct their flight equator ward in the fall. Another vulnerability to now consider is the potential disruption of the magnetic compass in monarchs by human-induced electromagnetic noise, which can apparently disrupt geomagnetic orientation in a migratory bird.”

The present study was carried out to find the effect of cell phone radiations on various biomolecules in the adult workers of Apis mellifera L. The results of the treated adults were analyzed and compared with the control. Radiation from the cell phone influences honey bees’ behavior and physiology. There was reduced motor activity of the worker bees on the comb initially, followed by en masse migration and movement toward “talk mode” cell phone. The initial quiet period was characterized by rise in concentration of biomolecules including proteins, carbohydrates and lipids, perhaps due to stimulation of body mechanism to fight the stressful condition created by the radiations. At later stages of exposure, there was a slight decline in the concentration of biomolecules probably because the body had adapted to the stimulus.
Favre, Daniel. “Mobile phone induced honeybee worker piping.” Apidologie, vol. 42, 2011, pp. 270-9.
Electromagnetic waves originating from mobile phones had a dramatic impact on the behavior of the bees, namely by inducing the worker piping signal. In natural conditions, worker piping either announces the swarming process of the bee colony or is a signal of a disturbed bee colony.

We have compared the performance of honeybees in cell phone radiation exposed and unexposed colonies. A significant (p < 0.05) decline in colony strength and in the egg laying rate of the queen was observed. The behaviour of exposed foragers was negatively influenced by the exposure, there was neither honey nor pollen in the colony at the end of the experiment.”

Of concern to DMBM are the potential impacts of radiation on bird populations.For example, preliminary research on wild birds at cellular phone tower sites in Spain showed strong negative correlations between levels of tower-emitted microwave radiation and bird breeding, nesting, and roosting in the vicinity of the electromagnetic fields.

Sainudeen, Sahib.S. “Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) Clashes with Honey Bees.” International Journal of Environmental Sciences, vol. 1, no. 5, 2011.
Recently a sharp decline in population of honey bees has been observed in Kerala. Although the bees are susceptible to diseases and attacked by natural enemies like wasps, ants and wax moth, constant vigilance on the part of the bee keepers can over come these adverse conditions. The present plunge in population (< 0.01) was not due to these reasons. It was caused by man due to unscientific proliferation of towers and mobile phones.”
Six colonies of honeybees ( Apis mellifera ) were selected. Three colonies were selected as test colonies (T1,T2&T3) and the rest were as control (C1,C2&C3). The test colonies were provided with mobile phones in working conditions with frequency of 900 MHz for 10 minutes for a short period of ten days. After ten days the worker bees never returned hives in the test colonies. The massive amount of radiation produced by mobile phones and towers is actually frying the navigational skills of the honey bees and preventing them from returning back to their hives.
The study concludes, “More must also be done to compensate individuals and communities put at risk. Insurance covering diseases related to towers, such as cancer, should be provided for free to people living in 1 km radius around the tower. Independent monitoring of radiation levels and overall health of the community and nature surrounding towers is necessary to identify hazards early. Communities need to be given the opportunity to reject cell towers and national governments need to consider ways of growing their cellular networks without constantly exposing people to radiation.”
“The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment.” Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly, resolution 1815, 2011.
The potential health effects of the very low frequency of electromagnetic fields surrounding power lines and electrical devices are the subject of ongoing research and a significant amount of public debate. While electrical and electromagnetic fields in certain frequency bands have fully beneficial effects which are applied in medicine, other non-ionising frequencies, be they sourced from extremely low frequencies, power lines or certain high frequency waves used in the fields of radar, telecommunications and mobile telephony, appear to have more or less potentially harmful, non-thermal, biological effects on plants, insects and animals, as well as the human body when exposed to levels that are below the official threshold values. One must respect the precautionary principle and revise the current threshold values; waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case in the past with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.
As regards standards or threshold values for emissions of electromagnetic fields of all types and frequencies, the Assembly strongly recommends that the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle is applied, covering both the so-called thermal effects and the athermic or biological effects of electromagnetic emissions or radiation. Moreover, the precautionary principle should be applied when scientific evaluation does not allow the risk to be determined with sufficient certainty.
