What do Beekeepers say?
Get into a regular treatment program twice a year with MAQS and your bees will be as they should be, healthy and thriving.
NOD has excellent customer service. I use both the Cozies and MAQS. Keep up the good work.
We put on two pads of the Mite Away Quick Strips twice a year in North Dakota, first of may, they all get fed, fat healthy bees handle treatment much better.
If I follow the directions on the container, it works really well. Our pallets have a small 4” entrance, only 5/8” high; we need more air volume in there, so we offset the second box by 1/2”. That works wonderful.
If I can get away with using a treatment that costs me less than 12% a year, with the good that Formic Acid does for us, I say that is excellent!

🐝On this #throwbackthursday we are getting an update from Brent Woodworth who in 2013 gave us a glimpse of how he keeps his bees healthy! Top photo from 2013 and bottom from 2017 with 3700 colonies going into Almonds. 2013 Bee Culture Magazine article "Nutrition and Mite Control" "An 8% loss on 2988 colonies coming through the Winter of 2012 in an Idaho potato barn is a darn good ratio, when loses of up to 50 and 70% have been reported. So what does this second generation beekeeper from Halliday, North Dakota do to bring his bees through the winter with such a low winter mortality rate? Brent Woodworth, with humility and humour, generously shares his management practices which successfully support him and his crew in raising and maintaining healthy bee colonies."

Highs and lows of the New Zealand Apiculture Industry: Manuka yields are said to be down 70 - 80% this year, however there is a lot of long-term storage with manuka, as it improves the honey's UMF as it ages. Supply vs. demand could see higher prices, along with new science that identifies genuine "manuka honey". “Unique signature compounds have been identified that allow us to test and verify the authenticity of manuka honey” Fera Science biochemist Adrian Charlton tells New Food magazine.
