Promoting 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 with Innovative Products

NOD Apiary Products Ltd. continues to aid the developing apiculture industry by producing organic and sustainable honey bee health products. Formic Pro and the 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. The Formic Pro and MAQS technology eliminates the risk of residues; 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.


Healthy Bees. Healthy Planet


The ‘NOD Apiary Products’ family of companies strives to bring the most sustainable, convenient and effective Honey bee and animal health products to the global marketplace.

Applying Our Innovation Across Industries

NOD Apiary Products’ focus on honey bee health expanded when the dairy farmers on our team discovered that organic acids, like formic acid, could also be used for livestock. The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) research on Acidified Milk Feeding Programs for the dairy cow, goat and sheep industries inspired NOD employees to investigate. The results were very positive and we launched the newest addition to our product line, Nature’s Way 9.8. Newborn livestock can now have access to fresh milk 24 hours a day. When milk is acidified with 9.8% formic acid it reduces and, in most cases, prevents scours. With Nature’s Way 9.8%, young well-fed livestock are healthy and happier because they can drink as much milk as they want, when they want, which is especially important in colder climates.

Extending Our Products Across the Globe

Our global reach at NOD Apiary Products Ltd. continues with operating subsidiaries in the United States, NOD Apiary Products USA Inc. and NOD Apiary Ireland Ltd. in Ireland.

NOD Apiary Products was awarded the Ontario Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence, 2006, Innovation Project of the Year, 2008 and Agri Business of the Year, 2011. Our passion is honey bee health and young livestock wellness, and as such, we are dedicated to environmental stewardship.
