Thanks Dave.  Whether or not neonics are the bad guy, this is a valuable and
informative test.  We will be able to compare loss and recovery rates
between Europe and the US, two countries with a similar enough climate to
make comparison meaningful and yes I know Europe is a continent not a
country.  But the bees don't know the difference, especially if neonics are
causing them to be stupid.  Let the tests begin!
