The Beekeeper's Back
The Italian honey bees that Best Bees hives are filled with are extremely sweet and gentle. While they do have stingers, they are not aggressive like their Africanized counterparts. Even so, the beekeepers at Best Bees Company wear beekeeper suits to protect against occasional stings during hive installations and periodic visits when checking the hives. The suits are made of white, heavy cotton.
