Does anyone have experience feeding confectioners/powdered sugar and if so can you share the outcome? By this I don't mean dusting for mites or to unite colonies, I do not mean mixed with Terramycin. By feeding I mean as patties and/or syrup. I am having a hard time coughing up the crazy prices of sugar and a ton of this became available at a good price; I've never used this before as a feed source and just want to make sure the low levels of corn starch that I know it has will not be detrimental to the health of the honey bees before I move forward and purchase this.
