Why a Ventilated Beekeeping Suit?
Beekeeping is a hot business, and most of it happens at the height of the day when most of the bees in the colony are out collecting honey and pollen. Make life easier for yourself and get a kiwibreeze – mesh Ventilated Beekeeping Suit.
The Ventilated Beekeeping Suit uses plastic zippers, three layers of mesh fabric, two deep pockets at the chest and two deep pockets on the legs. The sleeves have elastic and the ankle area has either a Velcro strip or zip, so you can secure the bottom of the legs around around your shoes,or gumboots.
At kiwimana we have been using the mesh Beekeeping Suit since 2013 and find them fantastic, no more working in damp sweat laiden cotton suits all day. The kiwibreeze mesh suit makes beekeeping a joy on hot days and when the breeze hits, heaven.
The material sits away from your skin, so the bee stingers aren’t long enough to reach your body.
