Mite Control with Mite Away Quick Strips

With MAQS beekeepers can treat at the most beneficial times because the treatment can be applied with or without honey supers on the hives. Mite resistance to the A.I. (formic acid) is not expected to occur. Timely treatment can protect both key bee populations from varroa and tracheal mites: Summer bees for the honey crop; and the winter bees that will make up the overwinter cluster.
