I love bee keeping, it is the only time in my life I have been a size 6!
Being new to bee keeping I have gone for the full zipped hood bee suit. Some may think it is overkill, but I really dont like stings. This suit is like a white cotton boiler suit with an attached zipped hood. It has elastic at the ankles and wrists to keep any wondering bees out. I bought it through Arataki Honey, which is just down the road from me. Bee keeping is obviously experiencing a surge in popularity as I had to wait 4 weeks for the arrival of my suit.
