Well, it's nice they have a conscience.  And I would hate to see my favorite flavor (Vanilla Swiss Almond) disappear.

Oh look, another corporation donating money to find the culprit of CCD. Ultimately, the final result will be inconclusive, we all know CCD is the result of years of chemicals, it's misuse and bad management, just ask any Organic Beekeeper. :-D

Wish it was that simple. Pesticides are definitely one of the many possibilities as to the cause.

Stressed bees are weak bees. Weak bees are susceptible to disease.

Now what all causes stress in bees?

Moving them too often is one.
