I don't know that bees are great human emotion detectors, but they do react to sudden jerky movement, rough handling and other stimulii. Wear what protective clothing makes you comfortable, less anxious, around bees and then, once you are comfortable, take off the gloves and so on down to normal clothing. Being aware of how the bees are acting and being prepared to put the veil or gloves back on.
Let the bees tell you what to wear. The only way you will be able to know what the bees are telling you is by experience. Some lessons have to be learned over and over again.
If I ram a pipe down into the ground, can I get oil? You work in the oil rigs, right?
