Something slips while your in the hive and end up needing the full gear and don't have it, then what?
Like the day I was juggling drone frames and... dropped one?
Yeah. I dropped a frame full of bees. Here's what I did:
I closed my eyes and froze. Didn't move at all. Waited to be stung.
They didn't sting. After half a minute or so, I decided they weren't too upset, and slowly and smoothly, picked up the frame and put it back in the hive. And then I scooped up the bees (house bees, young, confused) with my hands (bare) and put them back in the hive.
I'd like to have the jacket with attache veil. They look nice.
