      A friend sent me this. She has seen two individuals emerge from a colony in her lawn; the rest of the colony appears to be normal.  She suggests this is DWV in bumbles. There does seem to be research suggesting it can pass between bumbles and honeybees so I guess it’s possible, but how unusual is it to see this? I’ve never heard of it before

      Gosh, poor thing, clearly won’t last long in the wild.
