It has been a difficult year for most of us and as we all know Beekeepers need a little cheering up from time to time, especially at this time of the year.
So, we’ve decided to create a new Buzz with our customers with the introduction of our new our venture BLACK BEE DESIGNS offering a range of Happy & Humorous tee shirts especially for Beekeepers and their families. The tee shirts are available in a wide range of sizes from Small to XXXL.
We hope you like the designs. We are aiming to expand the range in the not-so-distant future to include other items like polos, sweatshirts caps and hoodies.
We are happy to discuss “Custom” designs you may have and welcome any enquiries from Bee Keeping Associations for promotional apparel.
We have re-designed our Correx Boxes, they will now take 6 frames and a little longer in length, perfect for transporting bees, queen rearing, and splits.
Discounts available on large quantities. Please call to discuss.

SENTINEL PRO II AVAILABLE IN WHITE OR GREY, IN SIZES X SMALL – XXXL
SENTINEL QUEEN BEE AVAILABLE IN SUBTLE LILAC, IN SIZES 10-24
For beekeepers, stings are an occupational hazard – which is why in 2019, we launched our exclusive to Old Castle Farm Hives ‘virtually sting-proof’ Sentinel Pro II Bee suit.
The Sentinel Pro II is available in White or Grey in a wide range of sizes from X-Small to XXL, with a choice of Hat or Veil. We also offer a bespoke size suit to meet your requirements.
We had many requests for a suit specifically designed for women. Having spent some time looking into the prospect, we could see that all bee suits are sized generically – without consideration for a woman’s size and shape.
So, after much research and deliberation, we were proud to launch the Sentinel Queen Bee suit in 2020.
The Sentinel Queen Bee suit has all the features of the Sentinel Pro range, but importantly it is designed to fit the characteristics of the female body in a wide range of sizes from 10-24 in a subtle shade of lilac.
We’re delighted with the fantastic response from beekeepers who have told us how the suits have revolutionized their chosen pastime. Extremely lightweight, they keep you cool in summer months and offers the protection needed against bee stings – therefore giving the beekeeper more confidence when working with bees.
Key features of the Sentinel Beekeeping suits include:

As a beekeeper on a farm on top of a mountain in Wales it was difficult to get beekeeping supplies on a weekend when I needed them. So, I decided to set up a shop, not only to help me but to supply other beekeepers across Wales and the UK.
We sell a wide range of beekeeping equipment in our online shop including ready assembled and flat-pack bee hives and hive parts, our exclusive Sentinel Pro clothing range, treatments and feeds, Konigin extraction equipment and much more.
