    I don't know Mark. Perhaps, but am I the only one that thinks this may be more than a kerfuffle (great word). It sure seems curious coming on the heels of the politicization of bee "losses", the naming of a Presidential task force and the queuing up of lobbyists on both sides of the issue. The person running the US bee lab on the outskirts of DC, in all likelihood, is going to be a key player in the debate.

    Possibly, but what does speculation get us?

    A lively debate? ....... which I will leave to others. The extracting room awaits.

    Maybe this has something to do with it, from the dsRNA/IAPV field trials paper:

    "Dr. Jeffery Pettis is the Research Leader responsible for bee research at the Bee Lab, USDA, ARS, Maryland, and has
    established a cooperative agreement with Beeologics, post completion of this research."

    Could be but it is not a good thing for the Bee Lab IMO

    Because maybe the correct argument isn't being made about neonics?

    Guess I should have asked what insider information you could share as to why Dr Pettis is changing jobs.

    I don't know if you should expect a serious or credible answer from justouthere, Charlie. His Profile says that he has been keeping bees for 1 million years. So, either he isn't serious. Or she probably has alzhiemers disease by now.

    No insider info- just reading the research. He's a good guy. Hopefully moving on to bigger and better things. Most consider him a value to the beekeeping world. He did a lot of work.
    And doesn't it seem sometimes that we've been keeping bees forever? Much of my lifetime now. It isn't getting any easier.
