I hear rumblings that Mite Away II pads are no longer available.
Any truth to it? Why are they being pulled?
They are no longer being produced because the manufacturer needed the production line for their newest product, the Miteaway Quick Strip. It too is unavailable until approved for use by Canada and the US.
This has been discussed in other Threads.

Sorry to cause the redundancy. Did a simple search of this forum (which I assumed was the best spot) and came up empty.

The Mite-Away II production line was stopped due to the anticipated change over and fielding of the Mite-Away Quick Strips.
As it was explained to me, for some reason, NOD did NOT get the anticipated EPA and/or USDA approval to market this product for bee keeping applications.
Now their is a shortage and no production line working to meet that shortage.
Perhaps someone else who has more information & knowledge on this issue can jump in and clear up any misinformation???
In any case Miller Bee Supply did have a limited amount of Mite-Away II last week and apparently still shows that they have some in stock. The bad news is that the price has gone up substantially since I bought my last container of Mite-Away II for $32 each. The current price is $39.95 and if you buy 10 or more containers, the price is $36.95 each.
This was the only place I could find that had any to sell. Perhaps some other folks can post links to other sellers who have it in stock???
