Honey bees are disappearing all over the world.  The loss is increasing: 15 percent 10 years ago reaching as high as 40 per cent today.  Oddly, production has not fallen  mainly because more apiaries are being established to counter losses.  This is despite reduced habitat due to building, pesticides, parasites, pests and pathogens.
Australian Varroa Resistant Bees
The main killer identified is the Varroa mite which latches on to bees during the formation process.  The mite is in most countries except Australia.  The "Australians" are being bred for introduction to other places.  Unfortunately, they do not do well in cooler climates.

Pesticides are suspected of causing bee decline.  It is recommended that pest chemicals only be sprayed at night when apis return to hives.  If one gets poisoned thousands can die when it goes back to the hive - if it gets that far.  Anyway, they forage in the same area so many succumb.
