Promoting honey bee health around the world.

Dedicated to Honey Bee and Animal Health

NOD Apiary Products Ltd. is a Canadian company formed in 1997 by beekeepers in Canada. Honey bee and animal health is our focus. The founders at NOD saw formic acid as the active ingredient most likely to be developed into a practical, sustainable miticide for the beekeeping industry. Properly formulated, it could control varroa, tracheal and tropilaelaps mites, protect the image of honey as a wholesome food, and leave no residues in the hive components.

 

Driving Apiculture Forward

NOD Apiary Products Ltd. continues to aid the developing apiculture industry by producing organic and sustainable honey bee health products. Formic Pro and Mite Away Quick Strips (MAQS Beehive Strips) are formic acid polysaccharide gel strips which, when placed in the brood chamber of a honey bee hive, act as an organic miticide that kills the varroa mite where it reproduces, under the brood cap. Both Formic Pro and MAQS eliminate the risk of residues—so beekeepers can use it safely during the honey flow. Formic Pro and Mite Away Quick Strips (MAQS Beehive Strips) are registered in several countries across Europe, and in Canada, The United States, and New Zealand.

NOD Apiary Products’ Bee Cozy Winter Hive Wraps have been used successfully in the field for over 25 years. By properly preparing honey bees for winter, colonies consume less feed stores and reach maximum health and vigour earlier in the season. Easy to work with, the Bee Cozy ‘slip-on, slip-off’ system saves beekeepers valuable time getting ready for winter.
