For people that are using single deep brood chambers and treating with MAQS, do you add a super for added space during the treatment period?

After pulling honey, those single deeps are quite full of bees. I know the MAQS directions suggest the addition of a super, but I’m curious how many folks haul supers back to the yards and put them back on.

I treat in the spring prior to adding a super, and haven't had any issues. For this treatment I target when the hive is getting close to needing a super (e.g. I know it is healthy and the queen is good), but otherwise simply follow the manufacture's instructions. No losses to report to date - but I'm also doing it at a time where the temperature is in the lower-half of the suggested temperature range.
