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.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
