Main cause of disappearance of honey bees is due to pollution increase and lack of flower nectar.

wierd cause from what i have read, it seems to point to pesticides like those from Bayer; clothianidin, which pretty much stops them from making it home as they are too confused.

Or you could take the case where 50,000 dead bees died at that target store in Oregon in the last 2 weeks. Largest bee massacre in history, because dumb landscapping people sprayed trees in bloom.
