I think the samples were collected from July of last year thru December... coast to coast. A number of hobbyist, sideliners, and commercial operation's bees and debris splash from the hive was taken and sent to Beltsville, Maryland lab for analysis. I think part of the idea was to see exactly what was and what was not here. I have just now got back some information on my samples and want to know if anyone wanted to compare notes. At this point some of the stuff in the report I am uncertain about what it means.
What do you want to know? Not that I have all of the answers, but I did participate in the Survey.
One of its main purposes was to establish whether Tropolalics clarea (another SE Asian mite of bees) was in the U.S. or not. That's one reason why queens and packages from Australia are no longer allowed.
