    I'm a tad suspicious of it. Sounds like a mix of antibiotics, anti-fungals, and vitamins which my prevent or reduce disease, but have other side effects.
    Cows fed protein and antibiotics fatten really fast but in a bad way. This product may do the same with bees.

    Still it might be worth trying if you have a problem with dissapearing colonies.
    Since proving CCD is truly difficult, their guarentee seems kind of meaningless.

    My 2cents.

    The whole ad (uh, 'article'?) reads like just another snake-oil rip-off to me.

    Agree with Omie - pure BS.

    I would likely have used impossible instead of difficult but non the less exactly my thinking also.

    Cure for a disorder which the cause has yet to be determined. Unfortunately, as with herbs, vitamins and "supplements", wider CLAIMS are allowed without any proof.
