I searched but could not find the answer I needed. I need to know if treating with powdered sugar will be detrimental to build up if I dust every 7 days apart starting today. I will only do this for four treatments. I have 2 hives and one has a 24 hour mite count of 45. The other one has a count of 9. I aquired these hives last July so this is my first spring with them and I do not want to mess them up.
