If you get the chance to read this article, it's really interesting and provides information about CCD (colony collapse disorder), neonicotinoids (systematic chemicals), varroa destructor (a mite), american foulbrood, small hive beetle and loss of forage.  All of these factors are contributing to the demise of the honeybee.
Plus PPS (piss-poor beekeeping) the failure of beekeepers to stay on top of colony health which I'll have to admit has been the case with me more than once.
