"Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) or sometimes honey bee depopulation syndrome (HBDS)[1] is a phenomenon in which worker bees from a beehive or European honey bee colony abruptly disappear."

A European honeybee endures a shiny black varroa mite on its back. In the U.S. the mites have destroyed more than half of some beekeepers' hives.
Now a mystery disorder is causing bees to vanish, leaving their hives to collapse. The epidemic could put a strain on fruit growers and other farmers who rely on the insects to pollinate their crops.
