Beekeeping Suit - Organic Cotton Kids

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 flavours stored within each frame.

Flow Hive technology drastically reduces the chance of being stung during harvest, however even the friendliest hive can get cranky sometimes.

Whilst sharing your beekeeping experience with children it’s important to ensure that you provide the best protection possible. Luckily it’s easy to Bee Prepared 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 protection.  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 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

  • It has been really exciting to be included in the first automatic honey-harvesting device in history. I am really proud of what the Andersons have achieved. Cedar gave me the first jar of honey ever harvested in this way and it is still in my pantry, too precious to be eaten. Congratulations, you two.

  • In 2014 I had the pleasure of testing the Flow Frames. The bees quickly accepted them and, in less than two weeks, capped 40 pounds of honey. It was quite exciting to see the first bit of honey appear at the outlet, then make its way down the tube into the jar. Mesmerising.

  • Thank YOU!! Flow Frame team.  I would never have gotten into beekeeping without you!

    I have learned so much. My Biggest thanks to all on here for all your help and to the Flow Team for setting up this forum for us to support each other. And to the Great Father and Son that developed this great system to allow people like myself honeybee's.

  • I cannot begin to tell you my sense of achievement today when I harvested my very own honey for the first time. I would like to extend my gratitude to Stuart & Cedar and the team at Flow Hive for making this possible.
    My whole approach to gardening has changed as a result of my beekeeping hobby, every flower now has a new purpose, I love that fact that the bees are so abundant and productive.

    Life is great!
