Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a syndrome descriptive of a sudden increase in the disappearance of bee populations first detected in the year 2006. The definitive factors have not been established, whether viruses, mites, pesticides, poor nutrition, genetic modification of crops, or even radiation from cellular phones. Symptomatology includes behavior completely opposite to normal bee activities. It is critical that a solution be found, as bees are vital pollinators of agricultural crops. In-depth research includes DNA studies of the bee genome. Informed Bright Hub authors will keep you informed of improvements in understanding the nature and hopefully cure of Colony Collapse Disorder.
