Report Finds Many Reasons for Honey Bee Disappearance

WASHINGTON, DC (AP) --
   A new federal report blames a combination of problems for a mysterious and dramatic disappearance of U.S. honeybees since 2006.
   The factors cited include a parasitic mite, multiple viruses, bacteria, poor nutrition and pesticides.
   Experts say having so many causes makes it harder to do something about what's called colony collapse disorder. The disorder has caused as much as one-third of the nation's bees to just disappear over the winter each year since 2006.
   The report was issued Thursday by the Agriculture Department and the Environmental Protection Agency.
