April 26, 2007 - 'More Countries Reporting Massive Honey Bee Disappearances: China, Taiwan, Guatemala and Brazil.'
...'Honey bees have been disappearing since Fall 2006,
first reported in 24 American states. Now called Colony Collapse Disorder,
it's a spreading phenomenon in Canada, Europe,
China, Taiwan, Guatemala and Brazil. '...
Here we have a potential famine disaster which could not only affect the third world but the developed world too and nobody cares. Rather all talkfeast about earthquakes or 9/11.
A virus has emerged as a strong suspect in the hunt for the mystery disease killing off North American honeybees.
Genetic research showed that Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus (IAPV) turned up regularly in hives affected by Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).

I live in Queensland, Australia, East Coast, and can say that I haven't seen a honey bee for ages.
we used to have lots of them at our rural property.
Now we only get giant flies or wasps....
although come to think of it, insects in general seem to have become a lot scarcer than normal. Has anyone else noticed this?
And we have some little wild birds that usually feed on insects, and the last year or so, one has started coming to us and squawking like made because she wanted to be fed. I had the feeling that for some reason she was hungrier than normal.
?? Einstein said we only have 4 years left as a species to survive if the bees every disappear....
