More On The Bee Die-Offs

We can put away, apparently, some of the wilder theories about why honey bees are dying. It seems Israeli acute paralysis virus is now thought to be the leading candidate. Of course, the scientists don't know for sure, hey, that's what makes it science, sort of. I love science, I say again, but don't much care for scientists. All the bees may die while they dither. I know I shouldn't be so hard on them, but....
Now, one bee disease, called Israeli acute paralysis virus, seems strongly associated with the beekeeping operations that experienced big losses, a large research group has concluded, although members of the team stressed that they had not proved the virus caused the die-offs.

Science good?

I thought it was something to mocked.

So it appears the "small bug" is being done it by a smaller "bug". Interesting!
