Although the Sherriff beesuits are manufactured from a lightweight Poly cotton, the protection value has not been compromised! Due to the tight weave and smooth finish it is difficult for bees to grip.
See the video below of the removal of a wasp nest with a Sherriff beesuit being worn. The bee suit worn in the video is not the regular Apiarist but the Bee Pro Suit – a specially developed suit with an allover stingproof lining for those who are allergic to beestings. It is not necessary for the average beekeeper.
