And still more...
« on: February 11, 2007, 08:59:10 PM »
Seems I heard something like this some where;

"In the meantime, beekeepers are wondering if bee deaths over the last couple of years that had been blamed on mites or poor management might actually have resulted from the mystery ailment.

"Now people think that they may have had this three or four years,"

I'm sure the people doing the research have looked into this, but what miteacides have been introduced within the last 3 or 4 years? 

Although the problem has been named 'Colony Collapse Disorder', most of the reports that I have read sound more like major absconding than actual colony deaths.  Of course you can't rely on reporters to get the facts right with anything that they don't understand.

Moderators, would it be possible to gather all posts related to this into a single post, perhaps in the 'Disease and Pest Controll' forum?  Information on it is kind of spread around here, there, and in the General forum.

        and blah blah blah.....

Was this responding to what I said? You miss-understood. Some one once said something about mites being blamed for hive terminations when perhaps it wasn't mites at all.

No Jerrymac, I was responding to IndianBrown who noted the name as Colony Collapse disorder. The plight is also called Fall Dwindle Disease.

Thanks Understudy, but I already knew that.  I have been following this since late December, and already posted a follow-up link that, when followed a bit deeper, leads to the same pdf that you later, helpfully, posted in the Disease forum.

I was just pointing out that information on this is spread out all over the forums, but it is mostly redundant as you noted elsewhere.  I just thought it would be helpful to gather it all in one place.

Sometimes I get the impression that many forum members here don't read and/or understand the purpose of the Reprint Article Archives forum.
