Is MAQS as easy to use and as effective as the advertisement says? I used Hopguard last Fall, but did not like the messy strips or opening every hive three weeks in a row. This Spring I used Apivar and it was easy to use, but I had to leave it in the hives for 45 days. I like the idea of being able to leave the supers on in September so the bees can fill them and I will leave 2 deeps and a super for each hive this Winter.
