  1. This initiative looks like a good move to understand then accept or modify the approach to the otherwise unthreatened EAB infestation.
    Those involved will watch the direct impact plus other possible side effects.
    Bee populations are being impacted by another parasite whose attack mode is not unlike the EAB experiment.
