Where is the best place to get them from. I have done a google but it keeps comming up with cases of them instead of a box of 100.

These are from Screwfix, lasted three hive inspections with washing hive tools and were still OK.

Don't you just know it!!

I'm not a fan of leather gauntlets, most bees will give an unhappy buzz if you trap a leg or start to crunch them and in these gloves you can feel it.

I tried Johnsons baby power with them but the smell is too floral, I now use Tescos own brand.

mole valley farmers (west country only sorry) have a great range of gloves avaiable for sale.

i've got some great green ones, totally sting proof, nice long gauntlets, about £2.50 each. last a season at least. and i can wash the honey/sting off them too. much better than sheeps leather.

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 leather ones as mine are getting covered in propolis.

Thats a name from the past Admin, thought Scats had vanished a long time ago.
