Man, I hate it when they get in your vale.  Freaks me out!  I've been meaning to buy a suit with a zippered vale from Betterbee but I keep spending my bee-budget on more hive equipment.  I keep telling myself, "Maybe next payday".  But I tell you what, one more sting like I got the other day and I'm gunna order one right away!

I hope your felling better.  100 stings, that's pretty hardcore.  Been there with a yellow jackets nest back in highschool, totally sucks!

there are jackets with zip veils that are not to much.  i have one and it's pretty nice.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have a suit with the zip on veil and helmet, but with my own bees I never had to zip it on, my bees are not aggressive like my friend's.  But on the other hand I'd not robbed their honey stores yet either.  Maybe they're going to get mad too when the time comes.

By the way, today I'd order one of those Alexander veils with strings.  My friend and his helper using them and they did not have any problems at all.
