: DW carries out genetic research involving honey bees with colleagues as described here, but also owns a family business breeding and selling honey bees, producing honey and pollinating crops (BeeWeaver Apiaries, Inc.). Though some of the described honey bees are from his company's population we are conscious that we cannot advertise this work as pitting his bees over other varieties. The remaining authors have no competing interests and no authors have non-financial competing interests.
