Colony Collapse Disorder

Colony collapse disorder (CCD) is a troubling phenomenon in which worker bees from a European honey bee colony abruptly disappear. Many possible causes for CCD have been proposed, but no one proposal has gained widespread acceptance among the scientific community. One of the causes suggested is a family of pesticides called neonicotinoids; other suggested causes include infections with mites; malnutrition; various pathogens; genetic factors; immunodeficiencies; loss of habitat; changing beekeeping practices; or a combination of some or all of these factors.

Unfortunately, the availability of beeswax has been severely affected by CCD. Beeswax is produced by wax-producing glands in the abdominal segments of worker bees, who discard it in or at the hive. The hive workers collect and use it to build the honey comb, forming cells for honey storage and larval and pupal comfort and protection within the hive. As the number of honeybee colonies and the amount of beeswax produced continues to drop, prices of beeswax will likely rise.
