I have been working as a beekeeper for roughly 5 years. I work on an immense farm that has millions and millions of honey bees! All of us produce commercial honey and every one of us also rents out the bees to farmers in the area. I believe the task is both enjoyable and interesting. I also find it rewarding to care for the honey bees. The last time I had to round up the honey bees, they were fairly temperamental and I ended up getting stung a couple of times. They got me straight through my beekeeper’s hat. I decided it might be time for an upgrade on my uniform. I went to an online retail website that sells products designed for beekeepers and their protection. I planned to buy a brand new hat, but I ended up getting a ventilated beekeeper sweater. The sweater has double Stitch pockets, brass zippers, and a removable veil for storage and entirely simple cleaning. The Beekeeper sweater was a bit more currency than a traditional hat, but I had a 10% off coupon from the retail website and that helped defer the expense. I wear the beekeeper sweater anytime I have to round up the bees to go anywhere. It almost seems as though they can’t tell when they are going to be relocated. Any other time they seem totally happy to go to their hives. When I’m dressed for collection, they throw a fit. Honey bees are a legitimately interesting subset of creatures. They don’t sting quite the same way as hornets or yellow jackets and every one of us would not be able to survive without them pollinating plants, vegetables, and fruits. They absolutely supply a relatively costly service to humans.
