Not sure about Canada but Tracheal mites are no longer a problem in my area. You would need to use a microscope to see if it is tracheal mites.

Dead and struggling bees outside the hive is a pretty vague symptom that could have many causes.  Is this hive displaying any other issues?
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

Good question such as quivering as an example.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
