we are getting ready to start beekeeping in the spring & we have a 3 year old and a 5 year old. Trying to decide how much protection they need. My husband is inclined to just get them veils and gloves and light colored sweat suits. I am leaning towards full bee suits as I will feel bad when they get stung Any advice out there? I want them to be comfortable and have a positive experience, but we are on a budget. Did you buy a full beesuit and feel that it was worth the money for your child's experience? Does anyone know of anyone selling used children's bee suits?
I also am having trouble finding a child's size hat/veil only--I only seem to be able to locate the jackets with hat and full size suits.
