The ones I am talking about are purple and usually come in a box of 100 gloves.
All rubber gloves are going to cause sweating it the high heat and humidity we have .
I only used them once for a very hot hive. In just a few minutes my hands were soaked.
Normally if the bees get aggressive, I just re-smoke my hands.

OK I misunderstood... I have used those a couple times. I thought you had some you routinely used...

Hey I found the nitril flocked line gloves . get them from the snap-on tool guy. I'll try and get the name off the box tomorrow. They are thicker than the purple ones and can be reused until they rip. I don't seem to sweat as much in them. And I sweat when in in snow to my neck. :shocked:. I usually last me a full season on one box. They come as 50pair in a box

I have been using the black 12mm versus 9mm purple.   I get them from Harbor freight
