bee suits for Africanised bees and hot climates
« on: October 29, 2006, 01:10:40 PM »
Hi all

Ive seen mention before of suits designed for the above conditions and was wondering if people had any advice or recommendations for suppliers.

I have a chance to establish a set up Just outside Livingstone in Zambia and have a feeling I may be needing some of these suits.

Anyone with experience of the above, I would welcome any comments.

Regards Ian

Hi all

Thanks Michael.

I would welcome any comments from any more experienced African beeks out there, if there are any?

Thanks Michael Bush. But I was hoping to find, not to give. Info, that is. Here, I call the tailor and order a coverall, loosely fitting, made from white cotton material. What I will get is left to luck and the whim of the tailor. I'd forego white color for cotton as the material.

You might add the crack of dawn (as when to suit up) and, remember, there are people out there who pay[/p] for a sauna.

Yes, my tailor has an attitude.
