THE PERFECT CRIME: WHAT'S KILLING ALL THE BEES? Honey bee colonies have experienced widespread die-offs in a phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder. Many beekeepers believe a class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids are weakening their bees. Mega-corporations are making a killing off their pesticides—but are they also getting away with murder?

Scientists around the country are investigating several possible causes of Colony Collapse Disorder, including pesticides, viruses, genetically modified crops and even cell phones. One West Virginia University said he is certain that at least 70 percent of the CCD is caused by tiny mites, roughly the size of a sesame seed, and the pathogens they carry.
