Prospective Large-Scale Field Study Generates Predictive Model Identifying Major Contributors to Colony Losses


Roughly one third of the food supply relies on pollinating insects. The number of colony losses of the domesticated Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) has grown significantly in the past eight years, endangering pollination of crops like almonds. Recent research indicates that colony losses are influenced by a combination of several factors. We conducted an extensive and controlled study that allowed us to look at the contribution of different factors to colony loss. Results helped us build a predictive model showing that a single factor is often insufficient to trigger colony loss. Combination of stressors has shown to have greater impact on hive health; replication of the Deformed Wing Virus, stressful weather conditions, and Varroa destructor comprise the primary identified causes.
