Innovative bee protective gear FOR

forward-thinking beekeepers

Our suits, jackets, and pullovers all feature front access veils, allowing full access to your face without having to remove your veil. Stay cool, confident, and protected with our breathable 3-layer mesh material. Heavy-duty metal YKK zippers combined with added “zee space” means less snags and longer wear. A triple zipper system allows you to reach your shirt or pants pockets quickly and safely. Upper, lower and sleeve pockets are all reinforced to prevent blowouts, and ensure your tools are within reach. Hip zippers and ankle straps help make getting dressed a breeze – even with boots on! Heavy-duty elastic plus velcro ankle closures help keep curious bees out, and you protected. 

The option for a full ventilated beekeeping suit or separate jacket and pants plus three veils to choose from means you have the flexibility that leads to the most comfortable, and effective beekeeping protective apparel you can imagine. For convenience, our suits, jackets, pants and pullovers are safe for the washing machine once the veils are removed.

A BETTER KIND OF PROTECTIVE BEEKEEPING APPAREL

As beekeepers ourselves, we know how frustrating it can be to want to do something in the field and not be able to. Guardian Bee Apparel was designed with one goal in mind - to provide better beekeeping protective gear that will help beekeepers, help bees. We took the protective elements of classic apiarist suits and combined them with new and innovative design elements. These innovations allow beekeepers to tend their colonies with a new level of comfort and confidence. Whether you are a long-time apiarist or new to the care and keeping of honey bees, Guardian Bee Apparel has the beekeeping protective gear you need. With so many fantastic features, it isn't any wonder so many have fallen in love with the Guardian Bee Apparel line of protective bee apparel. Our high quality beekeeping suits are a top choice of beekeepers around the world who understand the importance of comfort and safety while working with bee colonies.

 

ORIGINS OF GUARDIAN BEE APPAREL

As avid beekeepers ourselves, we noticed that most beekeeping protective clothing was lacking. The beekeeping suits were extremely thick, heavy, and incredibly hot. This is not uncommon for many bee suits.

In order to take a swig of water to cool down, a beekeeper would have had to remove the entire veil, exposing our head to the bees. Standard bee veils simply did not offer easy access. They leave beekeepers without protection against bee stings when they remove the hood to drink, wipe away sweat, or taste their honey.

Most bee suits require removing gloves to unzip and remove the veil. The other option is fumbling with zippers only to be face to face with a hive full of bees. One afternoon, our company’s founder chose to continue working, rather than risk a sting. As a result, he became a victim of heat exhaustion and extreme dehydration. He searched for other options, but couldn't find the suit that had all of the features he desired. Thus, Guardian Bee Apparel was born.
