#FAQSFRIDAY Q: I am doing splits & introducing queens. When should I treat?
Treat before making splits & adding a new Queen. If you have new splits, nucs, or recently introduced a Queen & need to treat wait til the Queen has established herself, is laying before treating. https://t.co/FpKrmKdUoM
#FAQSFRIDAY - when treating with #MAQS or #FormicPro in the early spring you want to make sure that temperatures are above cluster point and your bees are able to fly as much as possible, bringing in fresh air. Check your weather to make sure the first three days aren’t raining. https://t.co/fsS1VSu87K
