The Bee issue was resolved several months ago - it was from an israeli virus - actually I think it may have been linked further to an Australian virus
In a news conference Thursday, the scientists said that their findings do not definitively identify the IAPV virus as the cause of colony collapse disorder.
"I hope no one goes away with the idea that we�ve actually solved the problem," said Pettis.
"We still have a great deal of research to do to resolve why bees are dying."

probably because Australia has one of the worst connections around, you lose reception as soon as you leave the city.

I've never considered this possibility. Ironically, I have a friend that's apparently beating cancer who claims that the "wireless" tower nearby is the culprit of his illness.
I just watched a Bruce Lipton video called The New Biology and he describes how these waves only affect people negatively while under stress. As for the bees it probably is dropping them.
I also read somewhere that the pesticides don't kill them but basically erases their memory, they can't find their way back to the hive, and it leads to colony collapse disorder.
Scary S#it, I think 3 years after the bees is probably pretty accurate.

I believe someone knows exactly what is killing off the bees. We will become dependent on the genetically modified food more and more as the natural process is phased out.

Its my opinion that no matter what is causing this bee colony collapse disorder, we are probably only going to be left with dis-information. The true reasons, if they have actually been determined somewhere, will either never be published or if they are published, they will get shot down or never see the light of day. I have only heard about this happening to European honey bees. Has anyone heard about this happening to native wild bees or African hybrid bees? What about other pollinators like wasps, hornets, flies, beetles, ants, butterflies moths and other insects. If it is only the European bees suffering this, these were never in the New World until they were brought here, apparently there were enough pollinators before that. Although I have noticed that every species of plant has its own pollinators, the European bee may be the best one for our crop plants. However, many crops like corn, depend on wind or gravity dispersion of their pollen and not so much on insects. We might be able to do without the European honey bee if that is the only pollinator with CCD. Perhaps we should look at this as another "canary in the coal mine" warning of something worse yet to come.
