I'm sorry, but "Colony Collapse" is not a term commonly used in the medical field. It is actually a term used in the field of entomology to describe the phenomenon where the majority of worker bees in a bee colony disappear, leaving behind a queen and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees. This can lead to the collapse of the entire colony and has been a major concern for beekeepers and the pollination of crops.

In the medical field, "bees" typically refers to the venomous insects of the family Apidae, which includes honeybees, bumblebees, and other species. The venom of bees contains a complex mixture of proteins and enzymes that can cause a range of symptoms in humans, from mild itching and swelling to severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. When a person is stung by a bee, the venom is injected into the skin, causing local inflammation and pain. In some cases, the venom can trigger an allergic reaction, which can cause symptoms such as hives, difficulty breathing, and a rapid heartbeat. In severe cases, anaphylaxis can occur, which is a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires immediate medical attention. In addition to their potential to cause harm, bees also play an important role in the medical field as a source of therapeutic compounds. For example, honeybee venom has been studied for its potential anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, and may be used in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis and chronic pain. Similarly, bee venom therapy, which involves the administration of small amounts of bee venom to stimulate the immune system, has been used to treat a variety of conditions, including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer.

  • In the winter of 2004-2005, a spontaneous collapse occurred and was attributed to varroa mites (the "vampire mite" scare), though this was ultimately never confirmed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nosema ceranae has been found in Canadian bee colony samples since the 1990s and has been blamed, along with traditional pests like the tracheal mite and varroa mite, for wiping out Canadian colonies in the last few years. (cbc.ca)
  • A well-documented outbreak of colony losses spread from the Isle of Wight to the rest of the UK in 1906. (wikipedia.org)
  • While bee colony losses have continued since 2006, many people have taken an interest and have helped to start new bee colonies. (wonderopolis.org)
  • Colony size and age of queen seem to be the only difference. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • They want to take care of the brood, the queen, so to leave the colony and not come back is highly unusual. (loe.org)
  • In fact, while bee colonies continued to fail in the U.S. in 2018, so many new colonies were created that the overall number actually grew by one percent. (wonderopolis.org)
  • There have been large-scale declines of managed honey bee colonies and wild pollinators in the United States. (pesttracker.org)
  • Colony collapse ( Unidentified Agent ) is a syndrome. (pesttracker.org)
  • Despite the apparent importance of neutrophils in this syndrome, ARDS may develop in profoundly neutropenic patients, and infusion of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia ( VAP ) does not promote its development. (medscape.com)
  • The researchers conducted a large-scale, multi-variable analysis using publicly accessible datasets from across the contiguous U.S. In particular, they used weather data for the years 2015-2021, and combined open data on honey bee colony status and stressors, weather data, and land use, in order to understand the relationships between the disappearance of bee colonies and the various stressors. (earth.com)
  • At the end of this month these two producer colonies had died, or otherwise left the hive. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • What's interesting is that small colonies seem to be able to survive but when put into a 10 frame hive the following spring greater numbers fail soon after fall harvest. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • A large amount of speculation has surrounded the contributions of the neonicotinoid family of pesticides to CCD, but many collapsing apiaries show no trace of neonicotinoids. (wikipedia.org)
  • The research team found that several stressors impacted honey bee colony loss at the national level, including the use of pesticides nearby, frequent extreme weather events, and weather instability. (earth.com)
  • Some previous studies have explored several potential stressors related to colony loss in a detailed way but are limited to narrow, regional areas. (earth.com)
  • For this study, we integrated many large datasets at different spatial and temporal resolutions and used new, sophisticated statistical methods to assess several potential stressors associated with colony collapse across the U.S. (earth.com)
  • I'll need to figure out how to orchestrate the brood breaks to both reduce the mite loads (and virus loads), and have large enough colonies for September honey production. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • But another factor may be the greatest threat to bee colonies. (wonderopolis.org)
  • Clothianidin (product name "Poncho") has been widely used as a seed treatment on many of the country's major crops for eight growing seasons under a "conditional registration" granted while EPA waited for Bayer Crop Science, the pesticide's maker, to conduct a field study assessing the insecticide's threat to bee colony health. (bijensterfte.nl)
  • Post-treatment mite counts will tell you that so you know if the colony is okay for the time being or if you need to do more on mite control then. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • Currie said it's too early to say how Canadian colonies have fared this winter, but he said anecdotal evidence suggests there have been both good news and bad news stories, he said. (cbc.ca)
  • The only way I've been able to recover my apiaries in the spring is to make nucs in June and July, and winter hundreds of nucleus colonies. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • Cardiopulmonary collapse frequently occurs in HPS and seldom complicates Legionnaires disease, except in the terminal stages. (medscape.com)
  • Since then, colony failure has been between 30 and 40 percent each year. (wonderopolis.org)
  • 2 of the 4 colonies from this year produced honey (Northern spring nucs) and looked pretty good going into September following a mid-summer formic treatment. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • The other 2 colonies were early summer splits and are doing ok, but didn't produce honey this year. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • The period of time with the lowest growth in worldwide honey production was between 1991 and 1999, due to the economic collapse after the dissolution of communism in the former Soviet sphere of influence. (wikipedia.org)
  • For a couple years now I've had colonies collapse in October and I'm struggling to identify the clues left behind. (vermontbeekeepers.org)
  • A new study, published in the journal Scientific Reports , has taken the analysis of variables, recognized as potential contributors to colony collapse, to a higher level. (earth.com)
  • The NY Times has a very good op-ed piece explaining how mathematical epidemiology can be used to better understand bee colony collapse . (mikethemadbiologist.com)
  • The group also reports that treating the colonies with the fungicide fumagillin halted colony collapse and cleared the infection from existing colonies. (cbc.ca)
