What bee suit size should I pick?

Bee suits are designed to be worn over normal clothing, so we recommend you select 1 size larger than you normally wear.

NOTE: The sizing chart below provides measurements of the suit fabric itself. In order to properly use this chart you need to compare the chart to your own body size measuring over the top of your clothing and include additional length for movement (to allow ankles and wrists to remain covered).  

Be sure to give yourself plenty of room to move around. Beekeepersuits are typically worn slightly baggy- you do not want these to be tight fitting.  It is the loose fitting cotton material that keeps you from getting stung by angry bees.

The most important measurement for sizing is the torso, or "nape to crotch" in the sizing chart shown below.  To properly calculate this measurement, measure your own body from the top of your shirt collar to about 15cm / 6in below the bottom of your crotch. The next measurement to consider is the "waistband  circumference" which is an elastic waistband. You will want the elastic waistband to be comfortable for your individual size.

Safety & Care

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. Sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards when considering whether beekeeping is right for you.

Check out this Flow-sponsored safety pamphlet covering common beekeeping safety risks and first aid responses.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • Received my bees late March . And tapped 2 gallons as of June 3rd , with appx. 1 gal still waiting.
    The bees immediately went back to work patching leaks , and making more honey !

    WOW, God is great!

  • I had seem some speculation that the Flow Hive might not work in colder areas.
    I am a beekeeper from Alaska, and I can tell you it works GREAT!
    Here are the results of our first collection. This was not an ideal year due to so much rain in the region (Kenai Peninsula).
    I took 20 minutes to drain a frame and this is the result of emptying 2 of the frames ~ 1 gallon of honey ready to go!
    It was a cool day….in the mid 60s (Fahrenheit)….but of course the honey was coming warm from the hive (~90degrees)

    This is just the COOLEST invention.

    Thank you!!!

  • Had my first harvest, it was awesome, your product is truly revolutionary. Thanks for making an amazing product, really happy with it!!

  • The labor for the Flow is a lot less for harvesting but the same as for as management.

    Harvesting honey from the Flow Hive is a joy instead of heavy work and takes less than an hour.

    You still have the personal contact with your bees through inspections and such as you do with an other type hive.
