A Comprehensive Guide to the Best Beekeeping Suits

When it comes to beekeeping, safety is paramount. With so many options available, choosing the right beekeeping suit can be overwhelming. However, fear not! In this guide, we'll explore some of the best beekeeping suits on the market to help you make an informed decision.

The Cowboy Veil: 
Crafted from a blend of cotton and hemp, this cowboy veil offers unparalleled visibility with its 360° surrounding mesh. Not only does it provide excellent protection from bee stings, but its design ensures bees can't get close to your head or neck. Perfect for beekeepers who prefer a full range of vision. This is Dr. Erica's favourite!

Color, Color, Color

I'll admit I'm a sucker for colours and every year Lyson comes out with a new colour line, but for some reason they just can't seem to make it to North America. If you're a beekeeping store carrying the colour lines from Lyson please reach out and we will link you here!

In summary, there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to beekeeping suits. However, having a variety of options ensures you're prepared for any situation. Whether you prefer the visibility of a cowboy veil, the lightweight design of an Ultra Breeze jacket, or the comfort of a cotton jumpsuit, the key is to choose what makes you feel most comfortable and confident.

Remember, the best beekeeping suit is one that not only protects you but also makes you feel at ease. So, suit up, stay calm, and enjoy your time with your buzzing friends!


Bee well,
