I participated in an annual survey last year where my state apiary inspector came to one of my yards in the last week of March of 2018 and took samples from 8 colonies to send to Beltsville. I got the report in September of 2018. Perhaps this was due to the nature of the survey and maybe does not reflect typical response times from individuals submitting samples for testing.
