Strange disease hitting bees hard in at least 22 States:


"We have seen a lot of things happen in 40 years, but this is the epitome of it all," Dave Hackenberg, of Lewisburg-based Hackenberg Apiaries, said by phone from Fort Meade, Fla., where he was working with his bees.

Hackenberg, 58, was first to report Colony Collapse Disorder to bee researchers at Penn State University. He notified them in November when he was down to about 1,000 colonies after having started the fall with 2,900.


This could be trouble not only for the honey producers but agriculture in general. We could see a spike in produce prices across the US and Canada very soon.

AIDS for bees? Any experts (entomologist) specialized in bees with inside info?
