And now we have a name for it

The sudden and unexpected demise of honeybee colonies continues to be reported across the globe. From the Mediterranean in the late summer of 2005 to the US now.

Although the colony deaths are not yet satisfactorily explained -- and may of course be the result of quite different causes -- we nonetheless have a name for the beast: CCD: Colony Collapse Disorder. Personally, I'd prefer the rather less prosaic Nobeesdisease.
