    Default Bee Suits - African Bees

    I am working with African Bees in Africa and I am looking to buy a strong - durable - 'sting-proof' suit if possible.
    Can anyone suggest where I might be able to buy a suit to suit my needs

    Thank you.

    you could look at ultra breeze. I just use a mann lake suit the vented three layer one. I also use a round hood and sewed elastic stirrups to bottom of legs. Rubber boots thick rubber gloves. not goat skin.

    He works with africanized bees in Honduras. He mentions wearing sweats under his suit, must be fun a few degrees north of the equator. Someplace on his site there is a picture of his smoker, you will be impressed.
