There are so many wonders in nature and honey bees; how the colony works together as a team to create honey is a feat in itself. Bees are busy, make a soothing sound and produce a sweet and delicious treat. You should always wear the appropriate beekeeping clothing when working around honey bees is important to protect yourself from possible stinging.

You may not think that special clothing would be required when caring for bees, but if you want to be close to the hive and the bees, you'll definitely need to be protected. As you learn about beekeeping by either reading a beekeeping guide, taking beekeeping lessons or attending a seminar you will be advised that having and wearing the right clothing around the bees is extremely important not only for the beekeeper but anyone else who may be assisting him or her.

The right tools and supplies help you to do the job correctly and safely the best way possible. The right clothes will ensure that you stay healthy and protected while working with the bees whether you are in the surrounding area of the hive or harvesting their yummy honey. The proper attire that you need to add to your all important supply list are a hat and veil, a suit (preferably one piece), leather gloves and heavy duty boots. You may not think that these items are all necessary but your regular clothes are not thick enough to protect you from stings that you may receive.

You can find all the clothing that you'll need online and are available by different manufacturers. When buying online, ensure the seller has great credentials to ensure the safety of your purchase. The hat and veil are a must as they protect your head and neck which are vulnerable as they have no covering to begin with. The hat should have some sort of brim to protect your eyes and the veil is attached to the hat. The veil should be long enough to go past your shoulders and should be made out of cotton with a fine mesh pattern.

The beekeeping clothing item that you will need is the suit. The suit should preferably be a one piece, be of a light color (usually white), and made from a thick material. The suit should have either a Velcro or zipper opening and elastic at the cuffs and at the ankles. In addition, the suit should not be too loose as it would be bulky and not too tight as you need to be able to bend over and not split a seem. There is a variety of suits on the market today; searching a couple websites will give you a quick glance at what is available if there were no pictures in your beekeeping guide or lessons.

Leather gloves are especially important when you are working directly with the hive. Heavy boots will protect your feet from being stung. Wearing the protective beekeeping clothing will ensure your safety.
