    I like the bee keepers that post new things or even old things in case I have not seen them.
    Thanks

    This is interesting. I may have missed it, but did the researchers note any ill effects on the bees or is the concern that they, as carriers, can infect other plants?

    For some it may be associated with weakening of the colonies: http://mbio.asm.org/content/5/2/e008...dalljournals_0

    Further studies are needed to draw more solid conclusions.

    I think I have more or less the same pleasure you have gww in finding new/old things. It's a kind of enchantment I feel. A piece that may be useful to complete an always unfinished puzzle.
