In this study, we showed that a plant-pathogenic RNA virus, tobacco ringspot virus (TRSV), could replicate and produce virions in honeybees, Apis mellifera, resulting in infections that were found throughout the entire body. Emerging and reemerging diseases that result from pathogen host shifts are a threat to the health of humans and their domesticates. RNA viruses have extremely high mutation rates and thus represent a significant source of these infectious diseases.

Another great day in the workshop. Those who braved the weather left rewarded with all the bottom boards, frames and supers they needed. The "bee master's wife" blessed us with bourbon chicken over rice for lunch. Another heartfelt thanks goes out to Garry for helping other beekeepers realize their goals on making things themselves!
