"...we would not be so dependent on commercial non-native factory farmed honey bees if we were not killing off native pollinators,"
This report published 4/10/07 from Dr. Jamie Ellis at the Universityof Florida and offers somenew insights on CCD.
"Even though thousands of honey bee colonies are dying, a small percentage of U.S. beekeepers are reporting significant colony losses. However, these beekeepers typically manage commercial operations with thousands of colonies. Therefore, the data represent a minority of beekeepers but a large number of colonies. For example, less than 2% of all Florida beekeepers as of April 2007
reported colony losses to a disorder with symptoms matching those of CCD. Yet collectively, these beekeepers lost thousands of colonies."
