The mysterious case of the missing honeybees might finally be solved.
Since 2006, billions of bees have flown from their hives and simply disappeared as part of a mysterious malady called Colony Collapse Disorder.
The research team now includes UM bee specialists, MSU fungal pathologists and insect specialists at Texas Tech University and the Instituto de Ecologia, A.C. in Mexico. Much of the work has been done at Bee Alert Technology Inc. in Missoula, a private company Bromenshenk and his partners started that licenses honeybee technologies discovered at UM.
