Re: MAQS result on hi mite count
One word of caution on MAQS...do NOT use in low temps in the spring. It was applied to about 300 hives that suffered kill of all the brood in all cycles and the queen stopped laying for a couple of weeks...we thought they had also gone queenless because of this. I figure that because it was cold and there was no heat to disapate the product it concentrated in the hive which killed the brood. I told the beek to notify the manufactures of MAQS about what happened so they could put a warning on their packages, put just a heads up for those here. I would also not apply in late fall if it gets too cold.
