I just purchased a bee suit off of eBay for my wife and now I am looking for one for me. It has no brand name on it but I want the same brand for me. The most noticeable feature is that the hat is soft and collapsible in the center. The veil is very rigid down to chin level and then very soft and flexible below the chin.
I am not a bee keeper. I am a farmer in an area of central Texas that is plagued by hives of bees. I am allergic to insect bites and stings. I had no issue with my allergy since 1991 until three weeks ago. I was attacked by a hive of Africanized bees. Medical personnel pulled over a hundred stingers from my face and scalp. If it were not for the swift action of my local volunteer fire department (which I am a member) I would not have received the EpiPen injection in time.
I need this suit to use while operating my tractor. The seller called it a "BeeMaster Suit. You can still see the auction at: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=260145882227&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=016
If anyone can recognize this brand, please tell me where I can get a 4XL verison of this suit.
