What suit do you have? Is there a stingless suit?backhoeboogie":lr9olyqr said:If you're right, I get a full refund. That would be great.

One time I did a removal and put the bees in my Forester....inside the car, with me. So, I wore my suit home. While driving, I saw a bee walking in front of my face...I was like Ha, you little a hole you wont get me.... I still had my gloves on too. Then I realized it was INSIDE my hood. Luckily, I thought quick and just pinched him from the outside of the suit. After that, I knew that I would not freak out while driving if for some reason bees got in my car. Actually, they buzz towards the windows, so if they are in with you, you just roll down the window they are at. Plus, honey bee stings don't really hurt that bad. When I was just starting out though, the thought of getting stung was way worse than actually getting stung..lol... but, i'm a long way from working bees without a suit. I had some hives go ape shlt crazy on me, so I just don't know how anyone ever works without a suit. There is a guy on youtube that works his hives sometimes without and he gets stung all the time..guess he doesn't care...
I've heard that but when I got stung on my hand, it did nothing for my arthritis. But, maybe its gotta be done a while before it works, maybe?hurleyjd":1bk00x2n said:Bee sting therapy is used by some people for arthritis treatment.
Don't get the one with the hard hat...Those are hard to get zipped... But yes, they can. But, only if you're working with a hot hive or doing a cutout. Your face is protected but if they get in a crease where the suit is touching your skin, they can get you there. I get most on my arm in the elbow area. If you get in a hive that is really hot and you have mad bees all over you, they can even sting through the leather parts of your gloves too. Luckily the stinger, which comes out of the bee and stays in the stingee, comes out when you whence from the sting. One bee one sting. So, in honey bees, the sting will be minimal. But using them from protection from wasp, they can sting numerous times so i'd never use it intentionally to mess with wasps where their numbers are large thinking you'd be safe from stings....lol Although the original poster said their suit was guaranteed against stings. I'd like to know what suit it is and is it guaranteed against wasp..BK9954":1wqfqpe0 said:I'm about to order a bee suit, are you telling me they don't protect you from the stings????????
