A sweet and generous friend of mine made both my kiddos little bee suits, and today we got to test one of them out. We topped the homemade suit off with a veil and gloves from a supplier, and we headed out to "help" requeen and split hives. Hen never batted an eye, never swatted a bee, and had the most ridiculously adorable casual attitude as the bees flew all around.
He clearly had faith in his getup.
He's now looking forward to the arrival of our own bees *almost* as much as his Mama...
...and he can't wait to wear his special suit again!
