    Hi Barry,
    The researchers checked my hive monthly last year. They really didn't know if it was new to honeybees, as they just accidentally discovered it. Its been laying eggs in wasps & some other bees for many years.
    If you'd like more info from the researchers here is their web site https://www.zombeewatch.org/?navigation
