Supposedly, the mysterious collapse of honey bee colonies (CCD) has been documented yearly since the 1800's. Have the suspected pesticides been in use since the 1800's? Has a recent increase in colony collapse coincide with an increase in pesticide use, or an increase in beekeepers and the spread of disease?
I know that when working with noxious chemicals, such as lacquer thinner or sulfuric acid, I feel ill but still have an appetite at lunch break, and am still interested in social hour at the bar after work as well. Yet, when I am sick with the flu, I don't like mingling with others, nor do I have an appetite.
