[Science] USDA and EPA on Honey Bee Health

Nothing new here, just the latest USDA report on Honey Bee Health.  Mostly the same stuff we've known and heard about for several years now.  While it's labeled a "report", and you might get the impression it was developed by the Agencies themselves, it seems to have come out of a recent Symposium or Conference, with several research and discussions questions for the community that came out of the gathering.  Very much worth the read, even if you're already familiar with the topics.

Actual report via USDA (link at bottom of EPA Press Release):

Varroa Destructor is noted as still "... the single most detrimental pest of 
honey bees, and is closely associated with overwintering colony declines."
