    I determined that this was the cause of my multiple posts. It was so slow in accepting my post that I thought the command had not been received, and sent it again. I know better now.

    At least I think it is called shriveling wing disease (SWD), when the newbees emerge with deformed wings. I had been of the understanding that this was one of the signs of a major varroa infestation...
