    Default child size beekeeping gear

    Hi we are beginning beekeepers who are starting a top bar hive in the spring and have a 3 & 5 year old boys. Interested in purchasing used child size bee hat/veil, jacket or suit. Thanks for any information!
    Have a great day.

    I've got a new (never used) child's suit that I bought recently from Dadant. Make me an offer.

    Thanks so much for your offer--I looked at their website it is really nice, I am not sure we could afford that even used

    I am probaby going to end up making suits for the boys due to the budget--but I really appreciate your offer.

    Some free advice: If I learned anything about equipmnet for kids its that when you blink your eyes, they will be tall as yourself. So, buy something they can grow into and use a bee vail. I used adult sized coveralls for both of my sons. Now, my grandson is taller than me. HTH

    This isn't used but my 4-H kids ordered from Pigeon Mountain Trading last year and the suits were excellent. Under $60.00 for suit and attached veil/hat.
