    Gloves or no gloves?

    I've always worn gloves and after last year, I will continue to wear leather gauntlets. Last year, I was going through the hives when I got stung on the back of the hand between the thumb and forefinger. I managed to pull the sting out and then went to work. One hour later, with pain mounting...

    No interest in honey super

    Thanks for all the replies. I read on here somewhere that the qx can be left off which I did for about four days before putting it back on. The super was fairly full of bees but when the qx was put on they all decided it was better down under. :confused: Only on the inside of both frames...

    Nitrile gloves

    If you are after a cheaper glove there is an alternative which is a latex glove, not as strong but you pay your money and take your choice although am not sure how sting prrof they are. Starting to think that for those of us who use gloves to handle bees this type of glove is better than the...
