    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.

    This is the history of beekeeping. At least it is so in the modern era. Isle of Wight Disease.
    Disappearing Disease.

    These things happen w/out explanation. But thru them comes much understanding. At least on the level of viruses and such.
