    Default Is there a red light available for night work?

    Hey,

    Im starting to do a bit more night work on the hives.

    Been doing the red cellophane thing.

    ANyone recommend a proper or better unit to use instead?

    Preferably hat mounted or otherwise mounted to keep hands free.

    An ebay link or a store link would be sweet.

    Whats good????

    cableas.com or gander mountain carry headlamps that have redlenses in them. May check Dicks Sporting goods or Dunhams if you have those in your area.

    Some buddies of mine bought me a headlight for my Bday in Dec. It has a red setting. Saw em at walmart fro 10 bucks. I am convinced that they can see the red light though, but not as much as a white light....I use it for loading bees and I hardly get stung.

    Astronomy sites will have a wide range of red light flashlights, head lights and lights for sheds or porches.

    Check this out for $10.
    Think. white led lights so they wouldn't get to hot and have very little power drain while you were working.

    Should work on those floresent camping lights too.

    Or buy some red led driven brake lights for mounting on trailers or boat trailer if you want water proof.
    Mount them on a stand and run a cable to the cig. lighter plug. or a small 12 volt
