Bee Decline

Bee SwarmNew research out of the University of Exeter in the UK and the University of California, Berkeley, theorizes the spread of a viral disease — inadvertently helped along by humans — is responsible for the honeybee decline.
The study, published in the journal Science, found that European Honeybees are the main source of Deformed Wing Virus, which has spread through bee hives around the world. The researchers determined that the spread of this insect pandemic is largely fueled by human trade and transportation of bees.
