Oh no, not another bee killer. I don't know a lot about CCD Mr Ant...over what period of time does a CCD affected hive die out? Does it occur over a long enough time frame that such a parasite might be the cause? I don't remember reading this in the report - are ALL bees in a fly affected hive infected? And similarly, do all bees in a CCD affected hive die?
I hope they've finally found a or the cause of CCD, although it's not so great if it ends up being a sneaky little fly. I guess we'll hear more about this.
I'm becoming more glad that they stopped bee and used gear imports into Australia, albeit too late to stop a lot of diseases, but maybe there should be more restrictions on bee movements across countries and within countries.
