Formic Pro is a “new” organic acid treatment is now available for use by beekeepers in the US. Formic Pro comes from NOD Apiary, the makers of Mite Away Quick Strips (MAQs) and shares many of the positive aspects of MAQs, (killing phoretic mites, killing male mites under capped cells, ability to be used with honey supers on, etc) while addressing some of the problems beekeeper’s experienced with regard to damaged brood, storage issues, etc). Formic Pro uses a modified delivery method which we feel will be easier on the bees and brood but still provide the same overall efficacy. The treatment period is 14 days for Formic Pro, vs. 7 days with MAQs. Application temperature ranges are staying the same. Shelf life has been extended to 2 years.
