by | Feb 13, 2019 | Press Release, Product Update

A new tool to protect the honey bees of Canada from its worst enemy, the parasitic mite Varroa destructor, has just been granted registration in Canada by PMRA

NOD Apiary Products is pleased to announce the Federal Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has granted the Canadian registration of its newest all natural varroacide, Formic Pro™. It is a third generation product 20 years in the making. Key advancements in its bee protection technology include a longer shelf live, easier storage conditions and reduced packaging, pleasing distributors and beekeepers alike.

David VanderDussen, CEO of the Frankford, Ontario based company that developed and manufactures the product, stated that “Formic Pro™ has been well received by US beekeepers over the last two years and has also been introduced to New Zealand.  We are very pleased that beekeepers in our home country can now have access to our latest sustainable bee protection product.

NOD Apiary Products is the winner of several awards, including the Ontario Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence 2006, Innovation Project of the Year 2008, Agri Business of the Year 2011, and most recently the Quinte Manufacturing Association’s 2018 Trailblazer of the Year Award.

Our global reach at NOD Apiary Products Ltd. continues with operating subsidiaries in the United States, NOD Apiary Products USA Inc., and in Europe, NOD Europe Ltd., to be able to serve the beekeepers in those regions.
