+ - EPA: No Single Cause for Colony Collapse Disorder->

Submitted by alphatel
alphatel (1450715) writes "Citing a wide range of symptoms, a federal report released today has concluded that no single event, pesticide or virus can be held responsible for CCD in North American bee colonies. Meanwhile, Europe has moved towards banning neocotinids for two years.

EPA's Jim Jones stated, “There are non-trivial costs to society if we get this wrong. There are meaningful benefits from these pesticides to farmers and to consumers, as well as for affordable food.” May R. Berenbaum, head of the department of entomology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a participant in the study, said “There is no quick fix. Patching one hole in a boat that leaks everywhere is not going to keep it from sinking.”"
