Culprit found in bee disappearance

A military/scientific collaboration has taken a big step towards figuring out why all the bees are dying. They studied many wrecked colonies and found a certain virus and fungus combination in every one.

[T]he bees do not just die — they fly off in every direction from the hive, then die alone and dispersed.

They still don’t know exactly what the combination does to kill them or how it emerged.
