Deadly virus spreads from plants to honeybees

Dear readers,
Virus spreading quickly:  “These mites live on bees and travel from bee to bee,thereby spreading the disease.” as it says in the text. I wonder how the mites get on the bees, and how can we stop this problem? I also think that  we don’t stop this problem that we might lose a lot of crops and bees. Also honey. I think that if we can stop this problem in time we will have more crops.
Causes Of Bee Colony Collapse:  “Several other possible causes of bee colony collapse have been identified.” as it says in the text. I think that it would be bad if we start to lose a lot of bees. because we will start to lose food and garden crops. And also we can lose honey. That would also be bad because some people put honey in their tea when their sick.
"Vampire" Parasites Carry New Virus: “Just how big a role the new virus has been playing in the death of colonies is unknown. It would be difficult, Chen said, to separate it from a mix of pathogens and stresses hurting the bees”. As it says in the text. I think that he should be worried if this virus is killing colonies. They need to figure out a way to stop this virus before it gets bad. Well it already is bad! Really bad.
