    "We believe there are multiple factors going on here," said Jeff Pettis, a Beltsville, Md.-based entomologist for the USDA. "We're looking for a common thread."

    The above was taken from the post by coyote out of palmbeachpost.com.

    Just got back from Cali. and talked to a few beekeepers. Some theories of "ccd" include:

    High Fructose Corn syrup - (including GMO corn)
    Eviromental factors (i.e.poor weather)
    Nosema (New kind)
    mites (and or virus associated with)
    A new fungus-
    a new parasite-
    Pollen (protein of)
    chemical build up in comb-
    chemical enviromntal-

    Any experiences to support any of the above perhaps we can find a common thread?

    nicotine is a pesticide.....actully it was one of the very first pesticides used in quantity... pesticides are measured by the lethal dose required to kill 50 percent of a 'sample' populaiton. by this measure nicotine is extremely lethal. if memory serves about 7 times as lethal as ddt.
