Bee Protective Clothing

What is Bee Protective Clothing?

Beekeepers wear various levels of protection depending on the temperament of their bees and the reaction of the bees to nectar availability. At minimum, most beekeepers wear a brimmed hat and a bee veil made of fine mesh netting. The next level of protection involves leather bee gloves with long gauntlets and some way of keeping bees from crawling up one's trouser legs. In extreme cases, specially fabricated beekeeping suits can serve as barriers to the bees' stingers.
