According to the Apiary Inspectors of Americas' Annual Report Colony Mortality for 2010 was about 30% across the Nation. Of thre 30% that died, 5% of the deaths were CCD related. So, it appears as though CCD isn't as big a problem as it has been made out to be, in a way. What is a problem is the other 25% which could have been avoided. What is going on w/ that?
I myself suspect CCD (whatever that might really be) will turn out to be episodic in nature. So rather that applaud that the storm has past I will patiently wait and prepare for the next storm to blow in.
