Re: Do you wear gloves during a frame-by-frame inspection?
Back in the midnite days I hardly ever wore them. With my survivor bees I usually always wear them except with a weak colony in spring or on a flow. I don't treat so gentleness is down the list of colonies. I get stung through my gloves.
I used to use a veil and longsleave shirt, blue jeans, with gloves [like Barry]. I would get stung quite often. I now wear a pull over with veil that is bee tight as I got tired of getting stung on the face when they worked their way up through my veil, don't mind stings anywhere else except my face.
I doubt that with my bees there would be many who without gloves unless you want your hand to look like a pin cushion full of stingers.
