There have been documented symptoms of the disease since the late 1800s, although we didn’t really start being hit by it until 1972. The coin itself was termed in 2006, and the disease is generally linked to another found in 2004 by Israeli professor Ilan Sela and linked in a medical journal in 2007.
The first report of CCD was made in mid-November 2006 by a Virginian beekeeper overwintering in Florida. Soon after the report, other beekeepers began reporting reporting heavy bee losses under similar conditions. Science literature has documented honey bee disappearances in the 1800s, 1903, 1920s, 1960s, and 1995-1996; although the descriptions sound similar to CCD, there is no way to be sure if the problems were caused by the same agents as today’s CCD.
