Quoted from reddit comment:
“Just covered an entire year of work on this topic. There has been a large number of ‘potential causes’ for Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). From mobile phones to genetically modified crops (yes there’s published studies on mobile phones making honeybees go crazy). In parasitology it’s agreed that one of the main culprits is the Varroa destructor (mite) that is a vector for the virus’s that will kill the bees. Varroa itself won’t actually kill the bees (imagine a monkey on your back, annoying but won’t kill you, now give the monkey a gun). Most commonly transmitted by V. Destructor is Deformed Wing Virus.

Seen this on reddit and I’m really worried
