In Bee News

   So I've finally had a chance to catch up on what's new in bee news these past six months.

   If you have been wondering what the deal with Colony Collapse Disorder and/or "I heard the bees were disappearing" is, it appears they may have figured it out. From everything I know about honeybees and past and other research on this subject, the following seems to fit exactly.

   "New Technology finds pathogens that may reconcile contradictory claims on Colony Collapse Disorder"

   I promise the article isn't too filled with technical jargon and mumbo jumbo. I found it quite readable, so if you're at all interested in the subject you should check it out.
   So yeah, them iridescent bees eh.

   In unrelated bee news, China's still trying to smuggle honey in to America.
