Bee population collapse: multiple causes, says German expert

GermanyWuerzburg, Germany  - The collapse of bee populations, which is worrying farmers in many nations, has multiple causes including a loss of wild countryside which used to offer the insects a varied diet, a German biology professor said Wednesday.

Some German apiarists lost their entire stock of bees in the past winter.

"It's almost a natural disaster," said Juergen Tautz of the University of Wuerzburg.

The national average of losses in Germany had been 30 per cent although the winter was mild. Under natural conditions, a failure of about 10 per cent of swarms was normal in a German winter.
