Re: Bee Suits
Can't help with sizes.
Getting a suit because some else says you need to makes no sense. It depends on your bees. If he's not getting stung now, why make him more uncomfortable with the extra clothing? If you expect to be raising bees that are more defensive, then go ahead with it.
I have bees I can work in shorts and t-shirts. I also have bees I wouldn't dare open up without a suit and I still get stung. Maybe I'm just crazy that way keeping them? But I really don't care. I do well to keep them in seperate yards and don't mix them up. I love them all and see good and bad in both.
It's up to you what kind of bees your going to keep. Dress accordingly.
