> 1. I will answer your question on my new web-page.
Wait a second here... you started this thread with questions,
and now you seem to want to posture as if you have some sort
of "answers"? I'm very confused by your various statements here,
given that you have ignored wide swaths of the information put
out by the folks that are working with the affected colonies.
You seem to have made up your mind as to the causes of CCD,
and, regardless of what facts are offered by others, you persist
with the same armchair diagnosis of bees you have never seen,
and a set of conditions you haven't even bothered to read about.

No, I don't agree at all - your so-called "solutions" are things that
may have no connection with CCD at all! Clearly, you seem to
feel that varroa have something to do with CCD, but the report
of CCD appearing in Hawaii (where it is well-proven that there
are no varroa) implies that CCD has nothing to do with varroa,
the viruses transmitted by varroa, or the general weakening of
a colony that is beset with varroa.
So, given that varroa seems to not be required for CCD to cause
a colony to "collapse", can you now see that focusing on varroa
is not going to "solve" the CCD problem?
