Winterizing your colonies maximizes your honey crop.
The Bee Cozy has successfully winterized colonies for over 25 years.
The Bee Cozy provides an insulating layer to help minimize heat loss from the hive over the winter. With this assistance, bees will consume less feed and start off stronger in the spring. The Bee Cozy also acts as a windbreak for breezy locations.

What beekeepers are saying…
“The product was easy to use and appears to have completely solved my mite problem without unduly upsetting my hive.”
“Good mite control for honey bee hives”
“This product was very effective for my hives. Pay close attention to the directions and you should do well”
“We had 30% more honey because the bees overwintered better.”
- Peter Chorabik, Toronto Bee Rescue
“The best mite control product available.”
“A quick, easy, effective way to kill Varroa in your hives.”
“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!”
“After we started using your product (Mite Away Quick Strips) our mite counts have gone clear down. We’ve used Apivar for a number of years and they just never seamed to get the mites down, and even when it did, they would spring back up and take advantage of the hive. Last fall we used Apiguard, but it was too much to handle (PPE). Mite Away was applied this spring and it worked! We love the product now. Wished we had used your products before our 600 colony operation crashed. We would be still trucking today”
