Necessary clothing and other precautions when visiting the bees

• A protective mask with a veil for the head will be provided by me.

• Long wide trousers and a wide shirt with long sleeves, both with a smooth surface (not fustian or fluffy). Do not choose very strong colors like yellow, red or orange.

• Avoid using a shower gel or a shampoo with a very strong scent the evening or morning before visiting the bees. Don’t use perfumes or deodorants.

• Get sufficient sleep the day before visiting the bees, don’t drink too much alcohol and have a proper breakfast. Even a person that isn’t allergic to a bee sting, can have an allergic reaction if the body is exhausted.
