It sounds silly to me - but I was curious about putting on some light bug spray before working cutouts and hotter hives? I know that getting the spray on the hive parts and tools would be bad news. I was thinking about spraying my face and myself a little bit before suiting up. That way it won't rub onto the hive.
I am going to try it today, but I am interested to hear different perspectives on this. I have to re-hive a cutout that I got yesterday.
By the way, I found out that the "Professional Grade Bee Suit" from Pest Mall - is not even close to sting proof, haha. It is well made, and has a great seal (no bees got in!).
Overall not bad for $65 and free shipping.
