NZBF Using MAQS and understanding the consequences/side effects

Recommended Posts

@nikki watts - might not be the best season to ask this question, but did you notice any improved honey production using maqs prior to the flow? At the nod presentation they seemed to think this timing could boost honey production somehow.

 

I tried some at that timing and didn't really see an advantage, but then I had a pretty average honey season anyway, so might not be a representative result. Thanks

Hi we had heavy mites as were wanting to get honey off before treating. Decided on maqs and thought the bees would get knocked back but when went back after 1 week to reduce entrances down again the hives were stronger and had more honey coming in. Example the weak hive with just 4 frames brood had 6 frames after the maqs and had more stores.
