Colony Collapse disorder,
Seems to be a lot of factors, some researchers have found links with Digital and Telephone masts, lost of evidence from France about the
Bayer/Monsanto pesticides, causing problems, some evidence that the change in UV or light spectrum that is reaching earth due to a change in the
Climate and Magnetosphere, Ionesphere etc that is they cant see the flowers as before.
Also it seems that as in recent years with the start of spring being earlier or later than usual as well as the change in the seasons this causes
problems, also of course GM crops could be causing Gastro promblems. I feel it is like AIDS which is a mix of different things and stresses on the
Immune system that when enough are present collapse the immune system, and as lots of research has pointed out HIV is present in people who never get
AIDS also some people who have died of Aids have never been found to have the HIV virus, though this is very hotly debated.
There is lots on ATS about the bees look at my sig below, and here:
ATS Bees Thread Index
Everything you mention and much more can be found in the link above. I will update it soon for the last few months too, but all the good stuff
research and contributions are in the Above.
I am anticipating this spring eagerly in Northern hemisphere to see whats happening with the native wild populations.
