    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-1] MADRID - A parasite common in Asian bees has spread to Europe and the Americas and is behind the mass disappearance of honeybees in many countries, says a Spanish scientist who has been studying the phenomenon for years. [/SIZE][/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-1] The culprit is a microscopic parasite called nosema ceranae said Mariano Higes, who leads a team of researchers at a government-funded apiculture centre in Guadalajara, the province east of Madrid that is the heartland of Spain's honey industry.
