the first trial(I'm not 100% sure on the second) he applied the pads at lower temp. range so he did the trial at the coolest temps available, that was my first reaction.

The daily high temperatures for the first few days of heavy outgassing from the strips were in the mid to high 70’s. The hives were dark colored and in full sun.
Heavy nectar shake. Some hives starting to plug, so ended trial. Weather hot—about 90F.
Sealed brood looked very good in MAQS-treated hives, but also looked great in the controls
