We are so excited to join our local beekeepers at the OBA AGM & Conference this week!

Come by the NOD booth to visit Tom, Dana, Heather & Hannah! Chat with us about sustainable varroa control for your colonies and hear all about our new Honey Bee Health & Education Centre in Trenton, ON.

What do you know about Tropilaelaps? 👀 The always captivating Dr. Sammy Ramsey @drsammygrams shares a fascinating webinar on #Tropilaelaps mites with the Honey Bee Health Coalition. Head to the 🔗 link in our bio to watch the webinar.

Dr. Ramsey has worked with USDA and is now partnering with National Geographic @natgeo to continue investigation of this parasitic mite. Native to Asia, Tropilaelaps are a fast-growing concern for honey bee health. An infestation causes severe damage to honey bee colonies, such as deformed pupae and adults (stunting, damaged wings/legs/abdomens), parasitic mite syndrome, and colony decline. If (when!!) Tropilaelaps find their way to North America, it could have a devastating impact on honey bee colonies.

Dr. Heather Broccard-Bell, our Honey Bee Health Researcher, joins the November Urban Toronto Beekeepers’ Association meeting tonight as their main speaker. Dr. Heather will share our team`s experiences working with Spanish-style Layens hives this year.

As NOD expands into more global markets, we encounter various hive types in which our mite control products have not been formally tested. Since formic acid is a vapour, hive cavity shape and configuration can affect product performance. The Layens hive is a style that`s popular in some regions of Europe, and gaining followers among small-scale beekeepers in North America. Early this spring, NOD had 36 twelve-frame Spanish-style Layens hives custom built to accommodate field testing. Our research team worked hard to set up and manage this study! 💪🤓

Dr. Heather will share with UTBA what we learned: from build specifications to populating the hives, our management and varroa treatment experiences of these unique hives during the 2023 season.

It’s busier than a beehive here at NOD! 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝 This week, our Production team is focused on producing and packing Formic Pro in 2, 10 and 30 dose boxes to ship to beekeepers around the globe.📦➡️🌎 Keep up the great work team! 🤩

Honey is a labour-intensive process—for both honey bees and their keepers 🐝 🧑‍🌾 🍯 But there`s another silent partner in this collaboration: the wide array of flowering plants that bees forage to create unique honey varieties 🏵️ 🌺 🌻 🌸

Happy Halloween from our super spooky team! 👻 ...

We had a frosty morning here in Quinte West and saw our first few snowflakes flutter by ❄️❄️❄️ With colder weather around the corner, we`ve got overwintering on the mind and a few reminders for your prep:
• Get your supplies ready to wrap hives. Inspect what`s in storage to ensure your insulation and hive wraps are in proper condition to use. Consider replacing any pieces that have been damaged. If you`re using Bee Cozy Winter Hive Wraps, we recommend placing your wraps on when bees begin to cluster—typically when your daytime high is consistently around 50°F or 10°C.
• Do a weight check. Make note of any colonies short on food stores that may need to be fed in late winter/early spring.
• Keep clear records. Having notes to refer to next spring will help inform your early feeding and treatment decisions—and offer valuable insights if you see winter losses.

Happy Monday! While 80% of people say Monday is their most stressful day—we also hear colouring is a calming way to relieve stress. Click the link in our bio to download and share our #HealthyBeesHealthyPlanet colouring sheets, for bee-lovers of all ages! 🎨 👨‍🎨 🐝 ...
