Back when I first started removing Honey Bees, locating the nest was a challenge. I had to watch the entrance and the direction the Bees entered. Had to knock, bump and listen, and occasionally got fooled by the bees.
Not any more, using high tech thermal imaging I can pin point the Honey Bees exact location thereby mitigating unnecessary repairs. I remove swarms and provide cutouts.
The latest Honey bee news...
Although Honey Bee decline is lower today than a decade ago, we are still losing managed bee colonies at a rate of 33% a year. The answer to solving this critical question still remains a mystery.
Sciencenews Jan, 2018 report give us a scientific look at the problems we Beekeepers are facing. Read the full report at the above link.
The following is my perspective of the current situation.
It began with a disorder that was named colony collapse disorder, CCD was when the worker bees would not come back from their foraging. Whether from a viral infection or poisoning of some kind, we still have no answers.
What we do know is, there are many reasons for the decade long loss of honey bee colonies. Pesticide and herbicide use along with GMO crops effect Honey bee behavior.
When a worker ingests these things it affects their ability to navigate. Getting lost without the ability to find their way home.
Their is lots more on the subject that I will get into in later post.
