You heard it from the Fontenelle Bee Club site based in Omaha, NE first.   The state of Nebraska has approved Mite Away Quick strips for sale and use in Nebraska.  See the link to find out more.

not sure. I'll find out today though.

Even if they don't,  I may likely set up an acct with NOD for my business and carry it locally anyway.  There seems to be enough interest around here to make it worth keeping in stock.

I agree.  Once the other beeks with the club find out you have them, I'm betting they will buy it after they do a lil jig!

I don't know.   I just got off the phone with the sales manager for NOD (MAQS distributor) and she basically told me they haven't decided whether they want to sell to "small" local retailers as opposed to the big national retailers like Brushy and the others.

I hope they change their mind.  She asked me to get back in touch in a couple weeks to give them time to decide on that issue.

I just talked to Brushy Mtn.  They are carrying the MAQS.  They are waiting on a back order to arrive by the end of March.  they will have 10 packs available for $48.00 and 40 packs available for $175.00.

I will not be ordering these from Brushy Mtn to keep in stock as they offer no Dealer incentive.

However, if NOD decides not to grant me a dealer account directly with them, I will be more than glad to arrange shared bulk orders from people in the Omaha area so as to split the cost of shipping and save some money that way at least.
