  1. Bees were sampled from 69 apiaries (no.). The apiaries are identified by their geographic region (the city closest to all apiaries in the region) and apiary in/around that city (A – C sampled apiaries in a region). This was coded into an apiary identifier which includes a two-letter city abbreviation and apiary letter. N represents the number of honey bees examined from each apiary. The GPS location of each apiary is reported in the final column
