It is more likely that bees will survive on their own. Bees will evolve around this issue in time. If the study is accurate, cell use will destroy x% of hives, y% of hives will survive and eventually all bees will be based off of the y hives. Life is a lot tougher than some like to give it credit. It is not the fragile web of life. It is the enduring, never giving up fist of God! I am not religious or anything, just a nice way to put it.
