NOD Apiary Products Ltd. is a Canadian company formed in 1997 by beekeepers in Canada. Honey bee health is our focus. NOD has been awarded the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence, 2006, Innovation Project of the Year, 2008 and Agri Business of the Year, 2011.
Based on the historical use of liquid Formic Acid for Varroa control, the founders at NOD were inspired to develop a convenient, safe, organic and sustainable miticide for beekeepers. Through research and development, MAQS became a safe and reliable Formic Acid treatment to control Varroa and Tracheal mites. It protects the image of honey as a wholesome food as it leaves no residue in the hive components.
NOD’s formic acid applications and other beekeeping products have been available in the American and Canadian markets since 2005. Since 2008, NOD has been working towards registering their MAQS Beehive Strips in Europe. In February 2013, NOD gained VMD Marketing Authorization for MAQS in the United Kingdom. Since then, authorizations for 14 other European countries and New Zealand have been granted.
NOD has alsodesigned, developed and delivered other bee protection products like the Bee Cozy Winter Hive Wrap.
