Didn’t they already prove that their hive collapse was due to a virus or fungus, or parasite or something? I could have sworn they had made that determiniation years ago now.

“Didnt they already prove that their hive collapse was due to a virus or fungus, or parasite or something?”
I seem to remember reading that too. But maybe that was just a theory?
No natural mystery is ever considered truly solved until a solution that blames man is identified.
One of the other theories was that it was the Chinese-made hives and replacement parts, that is, the “wrong” plastic, as in toxic-to-bees was used.
Another theory had to do with the genetically modified corn plant was manufacturing a kind of pesticide and that the honeybees just ‘lost it’ when they reached a certain level of toxicity.
Another case of aiming at a pest and “killing a friendly.”
