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.
