In the early days of the Hive collapse phenomenon bees were studies extensively to identify any parasitic, infection, or toxicity issues to account for the the sudden (as in nearly "overnight") loss of entire hives.
No consistent answers were ever reported to account for this. Parasitic infections, toxicology reports, and all manner of biological testing produced no answers. This particular parasite now being discussed would have been identified a decade ago had it been present - I think.
I suspect this is a new threat to hives. Perhaps one of many, as naturally evolved systems are subjected to increasingly new 'adjustments' made to nature by agro and chemical .industries intent on monopolizing anything they can.

If the Einstein quote is in fact untrue then I apologize for including it in my OP as I always believed it to be true, thank you for pointing me in a direction where I can research and see if this was actually true or not as I am the first to say that you cannot believe everything you hear. It's just I have heard this quote so many times that I assumed it to be true,
My intention was not to mislead any members so I apologize if I did.
