In Canada and Germany, NOD Apiary Products and BASF announced today that MAQS Beehive Strip has received green light for commercialization in key European countries. European beekeepers will now have access to an innovative solution for controlling the Varroa mite, which has been designated as one of the major threats for honey bee health. David VanderDussen, CEO of NOD Apiary, stated in part, “NOD has a close business relationship with BASF, which enabled us to bring MAQS Beehive Strip to the European market and also overcome a major technological barrier: It was possible to extend the release of formic acid from a specially-formulated saccharide gel. A vapor-wicking wrap made with BASF’s certified compostable polymer ecoflex proved to be the solution.”
