Re: Powdered Sugar Dusting?
The important thing now is to allow the adapted strains to replace the unadpted, as would happen by natural selection in the wild. Then your whole apiary will be mite-resistant. The best way to do this is by splitting your best hives and squeezing out the queens in the worst. The worst possible thing is to treat weak bees - you just preserve unwanted genes and spread them around like poison.
