Colony Collapse Disorder emerged in 2006 when beekeepers and scientists noticed that significantly large numbers of adult honey bees were leaving their hives, never to return. This mass exodus has had serious implications for farmers and growers who depend upon the bees as pollinators.
In a new study designed to determine whether or not poor nutrition plays a role in colony collapse disorder, researchers have discovered that there are significant differences in the genetic activity in honey bees based on the type of food the insects consume.
Honey bees with roots in the local environment manage much better in the struggle for survival than imported honey bees from foreign environments.

In an attempt to deal with diminishing honey bee populations, US President Barack Obama has announced the formation of a new task force designed to promote the health of the insects and other pollinators.
