It’s not surprising children love beekeeping, especially when using Flow technology. Our hive observation features provide a window into the fascinating world of bees while harvesting straight from the Flow Frames allows for the exciting opportunity to taste the different honey flavors stored within each frame.
Flow Hive technology drastically reduces the chance of being stung during harvest, however, even the friendliest beehive can get cranky sometimes.
Whilst sharing your beekeeping experience with children it’s important to ensure that you provide the best sting prevention possible. Luckily it’s easy with our organic cotton kids suits.
This beekeeping suit is manufactured from our highest grade, unbleached, GOTS certified organic cotton and features an emblazoned Flow logo on its breast pocket. Equipped with durable, high-quality YKK zippers, a fully removable fencing veil, plus anti-bunch elastic thumb and ankle stirrups – these suits are the ultimate in beekeeping sting prevention. Lightweight, ventilated gauntlet goatskin gloves complete the package, ensuring your child will feel secure from head-to-toe.
Children should always be supervised by an experienced adult beekeeper.

What bee suit size should I pick?
Bee suits are designed to be worn slightly baggy over your normal clothing, so it’s best to choose a slightly larger size than you would normally wear.
Be sure to give yourself plenty of room to move around with additional length for movement – ankles and wrists need to remain covered when you’re crouching, bending or stretching.
You do not want the suit to be tight fitting – it’s this loose fitting material that offers sting prevention.
If in doubt or between sizes, go up to the next size:
|Child's Height (cm)||Weight (kg)|
|Child's Height (inches)||Weight (lb)|
Beekeeping is a labour of love. As with all animal husbandry, it’s a pastime which requires knowledge, skill and dedication and which carries with it inherent risks.
Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent prevention against bee stings, but are not 100 percent effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.
