Must be really calm bees not to wear any protection at all. Do you happen to know George with George's Apiaries down in Norman? I used to be down there a lot when my daughter played basketball with the Sooners. George helped me get started. I also like to give kids a tour of the hives and the way mine are situated, if they are scared, they can look out a window in my house and I can hold the bees and frames right up to the glass so they can see what is going on. I also like to go to classrooms and give bee talks. In August, I'll be setting up a display of beekeeping at the local zoo. Should be fun.
