Try what I suggestedI discount any poison/insecticide causes as it has been present over 12 months now, not in all hives yet has progressed from hive to hive.
Will read up more on CBPV, but had read about it last year and suspected a few bees but I don't see that 'short film loop oscillation stickiness' I think of as typical in any of the bees, dying or not. If it were not for the huge pile by the door I'd say the fliers and foragers look fine, even the dying can make progress about the pile for a while. They are also not shiny/dark/hairless but look normal.
What I was wondering was who might be interested to look further: university? NBU? researchers?? and how to contact them...
Is it worth making a few sample pouches of frozen bees?
You have nothing to lose
