Thick cotton beekeeper suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent protection against bee stings, but are not 100% effective. It’s important beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards, especially to children, when considering whether children should be allowed near bee hives.

Children should always be supervised by an experienced adult beekeeper.


It is generally recommended that you consider sizing your beesuit overalls a bit larger size than normal clothing in order to accommodate wearing clothes underneath and for loose fitting. The most important measurement on sizing is the Torso, or 'nape to crotch' in the sizing chart shown below.  To properly calculate this measurement, measure your own body from the top of your shirt collar to about 15cm below the bottom of your crotch. The next important measurement to consider is the 'waist band circumference' which is an elastic waistband. You will want the elastic waistband to be fitting your individual size. When gathering your measurements, also consider wearing clothes especially a sweater/jumper if you think you will need to wear this type of clothing under your suit when managing your hive.

Slightly larger than your normal sized clothing will be preferred as you DO NOT want your beesuit to be tight fitting. Beekeeper suits are not tight fitting fashion items and the best fitting beekeepers suit is slightly baggy. It is the loose fitting cotton material that keeps you from getting stung by angry bees. Beekeeper Suit sizes DO run slightly larger than your normal clothing to account for this needed baggy fitting already.
