Most scientists are of average intelligence. Some are below average. All are methodical, persistent, and logical.

how interesting! love it when researchers are able to present their findings and work with those impacted by the researched so that they too can learn how to adapt their lives, work, etc to the findings.

This is huge - no bees, no pollination, no pollination, no food crops. I was told by a bee keeper at the State Fair that there are no natural, wild honey bee hives any longer because of the mite infestation - not sure if that is true. But having healthy hives helps keep us alive. Great research! Congratulations Dr Spivak!!

Now if someone would just spend a like amount of money on bats, who are major pollinators, but suffering serious declines in populations, agriculture would be much better off.
