What are your thoughts on the Hive Collapse situation and how GMO crops are affecting it?

There are many thoughts around this. Personally I think that all things are accumulating to cause the hive collapse. Whether that be GMO, Neonicticides, pesticides and insecticides.

To Matt's list I'd add loss of habitat diversity, too many bee colonies per square mile, excessive artificial feeding, trucking thousands of miles, the Varroa mite which our bee is not fully adapted to yet, etc.
