Session 3
Beekeeping Safety Measures

Protective Clothing

Bright colours, preferably white, should be chosen for all protective clothing. Dark colours encourage the bees to attack!

The complete, appropriate bee-tight beekeeper outfit is:
  • A netted veil - most important to protect the head.
  • Long denim pants.
  • Long-sleeved shirt.
  • A pair of tall working boots and
  • A pair of gloves.

Alternatively, bee suits or jackets with attached veil are very popular. To be worn over the usual clothing, not instead.

Weak Points:
Make sure all zips are closed and no holes or gaps left open - the bees find it!
