Getting your children excited about beekeeping is a wonderful
opportunity to engage in an activity the whole family can enjoy. It is
also a great way to create an interest in a hobby that can be passed
along to the next generation.
We have found that some kids are hesitant about getting near
honeybees let alone working inside a hive. Stings are far and away the
number one fear. To help alleviate some of this concern, your young
beekeeper can feel safe we with our heavy-duty youth bee suit.
Made from a cotton polyester blend, these comfortable youth suits
feature a zipper-front with an easy-to-use detachable round mesh veil.
The elastic bands around the wrist allow for maximum protection for
small hands. In addition each suit has thumb straps attached to the
wrists which keep the sleeves from creeping up under gloves.
Two convenient chest pockets are located on the front and there are
also two waist pockets on the right and left sides which allow for your
kids to store their tools while working with the bees. The elasticized
ankles have zippers on the inside which allows for ease of putting on
and taking off. An extra bonus with our youth bee suits is that they
have double Velcro enclosures which provides even more protection from
bees trying to crawl inside.
All of our youth bee suits come with round veils. These veils keep
wiring away from their face even when kneeling and bending, and offer a
wider range of view.
