VOLKSWAGEN Aktiengesellschaft, Audi Environmental Foundation: starting signal for “Smart HOBOS” high-tech beehive

What is most significant regarding the disorder is the absence of victims in or near the hive [1]. Remaining bees appear healthy and afflicted colonies can recover, indicating a contagion or pest is not involved [1].
