Re: Need a new suit. Bee's keep finding holes in my old one.
I have a Jacket only style with a wonderful zip off hat/veil and closeure for the jacket. The elastic around the long bottom of the coat is super tight as is the elastic around the wrists. I love it! I don't ever do anything about the bottom of my pants. Never has one try going up my leg, yet. Figured I'd just use duct tape there if need be. But from what I can tell, these bees are super gentle.
I was just out there replacing the 1 gallon feed jar of syrup with no suit or gloves at all. I had to remove a few bees from the bottom of the jar/lid. I just wiped them off with a gentle blow of air and for the more stuborn ones I used a small stick to encourage them to move off. One buzzed me around my face, but then went back to the feeding and left me alone.
