So, finally people (besides me) are talking about this phenomenon. It's pretty wierd stuff taht the bees are simply vanishing, nowhere to be found.

New York Times is covering it:

The bees are dying. It's called Colony Collapse Disorder. It is now though to be some sort of contagious fungal disease, but the theories change almost daily. 25% of all bees have died.

Apparently, after the colony disappears (and dies), there are a few survivors taht wander around the old hive, confused. It's so sad. When I learned about the discombobulated survivors a friend asked "Is that what we'll be like when humans suffer from colony collapse?"
