The Beekeeping Suit    (Posted Mon, Nov 1 '10 at 04:29 UTC)

Wearing a beekeeping suit is highly recommended for beekeepers. It can protect them from bee stings and bee attacks. But did you know that you can't just buy ANY beekeeping suit? They also have to be of the right color - preferably light-colored - so they don't provoke bees from attacking or coming near.

Below is a link that provides tips to beekeepers regarding HOW to choose the right beekeeping suit.

The beekeepers I hung around with in the 1970's didn't bother with suits or veils. They just smoked the bees and showed RESPECT for their bees. This means not banging the frames around, slower body movements, etc. They let me work the bees and I found I didn't need a suit either. Also, when I worked in a honey room, doing the extracting, I got a lot more stings on my arms as I handled frames that had already had most of the bees brushed off. Perhaps bees now have more of the African bee DNA in their makeup, making them more aggressive, but I doubt it.

Catering to the unique Ferndale perspective.

But I think it will be safer to wear a beekeeping suit though :) We people can threaten the bees in a beekeeping hive for a variety of reasons. Knowing that bee stings CAN humans, it is smarter to wear beekeeping suits around them.

Dean, you should disclose that you're actually trying to *sell* beekeeping suits. Please don't spam our forums.

Looks like the forum uses the "nofollow" tag so it would be of no avail. Best go somewhere else to build links.

My husband used to do beekeeping but hasn't for a while. He's just starting to get back into it. Our 12 year old LOVES helping dad.
