boffins identify bee killer

Scientist chappies have worked out one of the reasons for Colony collapse disorder, which is good news because it will help bee keepers deal with the the issue, and prevent the loss of their hives.

I dont think at this stage that other factors like portable phones and etc have been ruled out, but we do now know that fungi is a major factor – specifically Nosema ceranae – I never trusted them Nosema ceranea in the first place…  always looked a bit shifty to me.
