    Question Interesting Observation of a Paper Wasp

    Not sure where exactly to post this, but. . . Last year before we got our bees, I saw a couple of paper wasps crawling around the patio plants. They had very small or no wings and were unable to fly. This year, after having our bees, I saw another wasp crawling among the plants. This time I (think I) recognized it as Deformed Wing Virus. My question--does Deformed Wing Virus affect other pollinators? Does Varroa attack other pollinators? Just curious, and I thought this was interesting enough to share with others.

    Funny you ask that. I went back and found this link that I remember reading some time ago. It's interesting and addresses this a little:
