Study reveals how insects contribute to atmospheric electricity | News

Researchers have found that insects can produce as much electrical charge in the atmosphere as a thundercloud by observing the electric fields around swarming honeybees. This kind of energy helps influence weather patterns, helps insects discover food and propels spiders into the air to travel long distances. The findings of the study, published in the journal iScience, show that living things can influence atmospheric electricity. As with most living things, bees carry an innate electrical charge. After finding that swarms of beehives change atmospheric electricity by 100 to 1,000 volts per meter, increasing the electric field force normally experienced at ground level, the team developed a model that can predict the influence of other insect species.
