The BeePro suit was designed for Brian’s daughter, Angela Sherriff when she became extremely allergic to bee stings.” My father knew I wasn’t going to give up my beekeeping passion and designed this suit for me – to date on the many occasions I have been beekeeping I have not received a single sting”
Customers tell us ” I have been using my BeePro suits since I’ve had them and they are entirely wonderful. I haven’t been stung while wearing them and as a result, I am a lot more confident in my handling of the bees and in my safety. I can’t thank you enough.
