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."
Because maybe the correct argument isn't being made about neonics?
Yeah, let's make some stuff up.

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.
"Most of my exercise comes from wrestling with pigs and beating dead horses."
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.
Mind telling us who this "new lady" is? I don't know whom you are talking aboutDefault Re: Dr. Jeffery Pettis Steps Down
