Veil is on when I do this. I'm not stupid I just have bad breath
I go without gloves or a jacket sometimes but have not got brave enough to not use a veal. This is my second year maybe I will do that as time goes by but for now I like the veal.
Bad breath dan
You may want to continue to do as you do now Dan. If you take a sting here and there that is OK because you are a beekeeper, however when they turn on you when you do not expect it and go for the face as they will do, it only takes one sting in the eye sometimes to loose it.
