Getting Ready for the Bees

IMAG0906

We finally made our trip to the bee keeping store! We had a wonderful fashion show trying on bee suits. Here is the final choice we made. Not a lot of zippers leaving  almost no areas for bees to sneak in. There’s even Velcro around the ankles. Yes, we did get the gauntlet style gloves too. I just don’t have mine on yet. He had to go to the back to get a children’s size!

While we were there we got a smoker, some feeders, the frame inserts, brushes and multiple tools. A little pricey, but better to be prepared ahead of time than to be scrambling last minute!

Bees will be coming in May!
