Nosema ceranae is one of many pathogens suspected of contributing to the current bee population decline, termed colony collapse disorder
Forecasts during last summer of an almost total collapse in the honey bee population, due to a variety of factors, including the Varroa mite and Colony Collapse Disorder
, seems to have been avoided and the British Beekeepers Association (www.britishbees.org.uk ) has been working hard with a number of organisations and Government bodies to ensure that our bee population does not collapse.
Colony Collapse Disorder
, where the bees simply disappear from the hive, has affected North and South America, India, Japan and most of Europe including Britain.
In 2006-2007, a new threat, "Colony Collapse Disorder

"The global reliance on honeybees for pollination is a risky strategy given the threats to the health of managed honeybee populations due to pests and diseases such as Varroa mites and colony collapse disorder
. Non-bee insects are insurance against bee population declines."
Ograin is one of hundreds of Oregon beekeepers who have experienced the unexplained national bee loss, called colony collapse disorder
Hopefully, this will give us insights into other health problems, including colony collapse disorder
The four main systemics used on food crops (listed below) are members of the nitroguanidine/neonicotinoid group of chemicals, which has been implicated in the mysterious colony collapse disorder
that has killed millions of bees.
Like Colony Collapse Disorder
, the phenomenon that has decimated honey bee colonies around the world, WNS is not completely understood.
Washington, Apr 16 (ANI): By isolating the parasite behind honeybee colony depopulation syndrome, also known as colony collapse disorder
in the USA, scientists have found a possible cure for the infection.
