Blog:Bee colony collapses solved
The answer it seems, is a combination of a certain fungus and a certain virus infecting the colonies. One or the other did not cause the problem, but combined, their affect is fatal. The discovery of the problem is a great step, since they can now attack the problem. Fungicide seems likely to be important in the fight.
Many plants depend on bees for pollination, as well as important food crops depending on it for fruit production. The problem was causing major economic and ecological problems. Now our hardworking little friends can hopefully get back to the business of pollination and honey production... and we can share some of the fruits of their labor.
