I am starting a brood break before re-queening with the hopes of reducing mites. The Colonial Beekeepers suggest a sugar shake at 24 days since the mites are all emerged and on the adults or frames. Mel Disselkoen in this brood break discussions does not mention a sugar shake and talks about an overload of mites entering the first newly capped brood thus dyeing because they overload. My question is by doing the sugar shake do I lower the mites to a point that they do not overload and die like Mel says? Should I do a sugar shake or just follow Mel's method?
