The exposed worker bees showed a reduced motor activity on the comb initially, followed by en masse migration and movement toward the "talk mode" cell phone. The initial quiet period was characterized by a 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 mobile phone irradiation. At later stages of exposure (40 min.), there was a slight decline in the concentration of biomolecules probably because the body had adapted to the stimulus.
