Kids Bee Suit - Organic Cotton

AVAILABLE NOW

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.

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

  • I was impressed by the high standard of your product, the packaging, and lots of information on putting things together.

    Now I can make the changes to my hives and be ready to collect some honey.

  • 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!!!

  • Completed construction today and all went well, you should be very pleased to know! No problems encountered and the instructions were very clear.

    It looks great and I’m very impressed with the quality of production. Thanks again for a great product.

  • I need to take a Minute to thank the Flow Hive team for coming up with such and amazing Honey Super.
    It has been our second year with The Flow Hives and it's just Amazing how the girls don't Evening know you are drawing the honey out. They don't get injured or stress and so much LESS work than removing a super and cutting the wax cappings off each side of the frames and spinning all the frames and let's not forget the clean up. We have harvested the Flow Hive twice this summer and the girls are just working to fill the frames up again.
    Of course you still need to do regular Brood Box inspections, which always tells a bee keeper a whole lot of info.

    Flow Hive Is The WAY TO GO .

    Thanks Again Flow Hive.
