I've long held the view that electrostatic charge plays a significant role in the life of the honeybee and other insects. With this in mind, there's a potentially very interesting 1992 paper on the subject, but for the life of me I can't source a copy. Can anybody help with a link to a free download of the paper ? [There are plenty of organisations who will sell me a copy]
