I was looking through the Mann Lake catalog and I saw this statement regarding their powdered sugar:
This is another one of those products you asked for! Mann Lake now features the finest granulated Beekeeper’s Sugar commonly known as "powdered sugar" (never to be confused with confectioner’s sugar, i.e. powdered sugar donut, which can harm your bees) in beekeeping circles. This sugar can be used for dry feeding, to make Bee-Pro® patties, mix with TerramycinTM or any other application calling for powdered sugar.
I have heard some on this board talk about whether or not one can use the common powdered "confectioners" sugar mixed with Terramycin for foulbrood.
What does everyone think? To buy Mann Lakes 50# bag of "safe" sugar one ends up paying as much for the shipping as for the sugar. I can't imagine everyone doing this.
Thanks in advance.
