can i just stick ten pence worth of advice here

not talking about the suit or anything else that way but when i deal with children i alway put elastic bands around wrists and ankles even if they are not needed and other silly stuff like that to make sure they are at ease, rember we used to use magic plasters on our kids, same sort of stuff realy. confindance building twadle really but it does help, evam if your bees are so gentle you only need a veil i would put the lot on them and the other thing is a glass or plexie glass cover board so they can look in with out being flown at
