    Yep, bees will sting through rubber gloves. Over and over and over.

    Third year as a beekeeper and this is what I started using last spring.

    I've taken less then a handful of stings in 2 years and those were totally my fault, I squished her.

    Bonus is that if you check Readers Digest and other magazines you can find coupons for 20-25% off one item.

    One commenter says he was stung a gazillion times with nitrile gloves, another says he uses them and was never stung even one, and still another says he's stung occasionally. My head is hurting. How will I know the answer to the question? Give them a try myself I guess. Haha!

    Nitrile gloves come in a wide variety of thickness. Beekeepers also vary hugely in how they handle bees and how many attacks they foment. mileage may vary with the same gasoline.

    For the past year or so I have been using these gloves: http://playtexproducts.com/gloves/LivingGloves.aspx

    They will make your hands sweat. The bees can sting through them but not very easily. And, I get much fewer stings. I still have pretty good feel with them on. My preference is gloveless but for other reasons I usually wear gloves.
