     Dr. Samuel Ramsey, USDA, Beltsville Maryland, is reknown for his work which discovered that the Varroa Destructor mite feeds off the bee larvae fat bodies rather than their blood. Dr. Ramsey is energetic and passionate about defeating the VD and will discuss his current research to prevent the newest menace - the smaller, faster and prolific Tropilalax mite.
