Hi to all. Been reading up on the varroa blaster and i have a question. What is the effect the confectioners sugar on the honey. I seem to  have the mites and would rather use it than the apistan which i know might contaminate the honey.

Powdered sugar has no real effect on the honey.

The bees will clean it out of the hive.

Sincerely,
Brendhan
