My Daughter is 4 years old and wanted a bee colony like her Dad.  So I made up a little nuc for her.  She is so excited to see her little nuc body next to the bigger colonies.  She says "it's small, like me".

Question, were can I find a beesuit for a 4 year old.  I am not good at sewing.  I live in Northern Ontario, Canada so it would be good if the vendor was in Canada, due to duties going across the border.  However, a good vendor in the States would be good if I can't locate one in Canada.

Cheers,

ApisM

I ordered one for my 4 year old son from a seller on Ebay.  A really nice little suit for him, with a bit of room to grow, looks just like my suit.  The seller is in England, but the item arrived to the States quickly enough, though I know things can get stuck in Canadian customs limbo for a while...

I got a suit for my 3 year old last summer on Ebay also.  It is twice the size of him.  I just had him out there with a veil and one of his pull over jackets (He likes his Wall-E jacket for the bees).   I got him size small gloves and he does the best he can.  Well, he tries to help to much.   And I won't let him use the smoker yet.  He should grow into the bee suit one day unless he still believes that he is bullet proof at that age also.

I bought my son's suit at Brushy Mountain but Dadant also sells a child's size suit.

I ordered a suit for my 4 yr old a couple of years ago from Bushy Mountain.  It's fabulous & still fits him at almost 6 years! Sorry I don't have a web site but if you google it it'l pop up!  FG

My daughter is 5 and uses one from Dadant.  It is huge!  But works fine.  I roll up the sleeves & legs & she uses tall rubber boots & gloves.  She hasn't gotten stung...yet!
