Experts May Have Found What's Bugging the Bees
    By Jia-Rui Chong and Thomas H. Maugh II
    The Los Angeles Times


    A fungus that caused widespread loss of bee colonies in Europe and Asia may be playing a crucial role in the mysterious phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder that is wiping out bees across the United States, UC San Francisco researchers said Wednesday.
...
    N. ceranae is "one of many pathogens" in the bees, said entomologist Diana Cox-Foster of Pennsylvania State University. "By itself, it is probably not the culprit ... but it may be one of the key players."

What I'm told is that honey bees are so efficient at getting pollen that
the wasps generally are pushed out of their territory.  If they aren't
present, the area is more attractive to wasps.

Could wasps be eating the bees?
