No matter how gentle I am during inspection there are always a few guard bees bumping into the veil and buzzing by my ears.
Today I used this neck fan mostly for comfort as it's hot, but noticed the bees were totally unphase by me.

I know I exhume a lot of CO2 or whatever is the attractant as I'm always swarmed by gnats and other insects. I guess the fan dissipated that cloud around my head. I felt like I was wearing an invisibility cloak :) It will also blow smoke up your eyes, so mind the smoker.

You can get gel filled scarves you soak in water and/or freeze to keep you cool under the bee suit. Much more practical than fans.
