That really is all he wears when he goes in the hive. Our bees are super docile, which is fantastic. Near the end of his cleaning, probably a good 45 minutes in they started to get a bit aggressive so he put a net on his head but no stings! Not a sting yet from this hive.
These guys have a real like for cross combing and unfortunately while trying to fix it up we lost some of the brood. Pretty sad.
We still haven’t done a real honey harvest, just a teaspoon or two to taste but I really look forward to the day we have a few jars in the pantry. We did save all the wax from the cross combing we took out. I need to clean it a few more times and then it’s going into some lip balms and lotion.
