    Just got an email from our Provincial Bee Health Advisor that the Mite Away Quick Strips are now fully registered for use in Canada.
    Didn't I just buy a gallon of formic not 3 weeks ago? :doh:

    Nothing wrong with that Perry, use it when needed, your way.
    With MAQS it's more like a flash tretment, according to beekeepers in USA, and many of them lost most of their queens when followed instructions.
    It's still work in progress I understand, personally I would wait for more field reports before I use it in my apiaries.

    I was hearing the same thing about the keeps in the USA.
    Anyone on the forum have experience with the Mite Away Quick Strips?

    One local supplier here quit selling it because of queen losses.
