This is what I always suspected. That the collapse of beehive colonies was not due to one single cause, but was the general assault on the bees’ health due to the variety of pesticides and fungicides they are exposed to. Note that this makes them more susceptible to parasites. This has implications for human health. One must suspect that all the “new” diseases and “new” viruses that are making people sick aren’t so new after all; it’s just that the human immune system is being compromised by this same chemical assault and is now unable to fight off these bacteria and viruses.
