I have asked for a confirmation on this. As of this point and time this story is unconfirmed.

However I said I would post CCD stories if they were of interest. And not repeats of stuff I ham already reading. I have heard stories about this fungus being a possibility this is the first time I have seen it in print with notable names attached.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

Now there you go again asking those smart questions. It is going to be interesting to see what else happens.

Keep asking those questions. I love bugging the scientists with them.

Then I came up with, if they are just run out of the hive because of some oder, ect. why do they not congregate at/near the hive. I just can't imagine the bees taking off and leaving the queen behind.

Reply from Dr. Sanford on an email I sent him basically confirmed my suspicions. this story is not confirmed. The fungus issue is only one among many possiblities still being looked at.

Sorry for the bogus post.  Undecided

Devils advocate  evil

Of course there would be some bees in any colony that were impervious to any toxin or smell just like there are always some humans resistant to our worst diseases.  The queen is the best fed so would most likely have the best immune system.

Seems as plausible as any other THEORY out there.  We just don't know.
