    I used MAQS in 3 hives when it was too warm (85F) and did not provide adequate ventilation and experienced queen problems in all 3. If I use it again I will chose cooler weather- just a couple of days in a row is OK, most of the product seems to have evaporated by day 3, and provide lots of fresh air. I might confine the queen to an upper story, too.

    They claim the minimum ventilation requirement is a fully open enterence. Did you have your enterence closed off?
    They say on the website to do the treatment with day time highs of between 10 and 30 degrees C.

    I left the entrance fully open but closed the SBB and top entrances. And the weather both night and day was really hot. One queen died, one suprceded immediately and one shut down for more than a month. I'm investigating oxalic acid vaporization now.

    On the other hand, my mentor treated 200+ hives, no problem.
