    A survey crew in the Klamath mountains in California noticed a large
    number of solitary bees landing on their GPS receiving antenna. See the
    attached photograph. The bees arrived over the morning, landing on all
    parts of the GPS, but not on other equipment. The GPS antenna does not
    transmit signals but is an amplified receiver.

    Has anyone noticed bees being attracted to electronics? Maybe they are
    responding an electric field?
