      Here's a link to an interesting news story with the latest possible explanation for colony collapse disorder.  A fly species already documented parasitising bumble bees is now know to use honey bees for hosts as well.  Hosts are often disoriented which gives them the zombie look that inspired the articles's title and its possible these parasites act as a vector for other honey bee diseases.
