Our veils offer superior visibility and sun protection and are made with high quality materials meant to work as hard as you and your bees! Each veil is made by hand in small batches in Portland, OR.
Materials: 100% cotton fabric, fiberglass screening, UPF 50+straw hat with screened ventilation holes for additional breathability, adjustable with high quality paracord and toggle. The Hat has screened ventilation holes for additional breathability.
Great for: Hot weather beekeeping, apiary tours, photo shoots, media promotions, special occasion beekeeping, swarm catching, also durable enough for everyday bee work.
Versatile: Can be worn with a traditional bee suit (over or under), over or under overalls, over or under a jacket, or over a shirt.
Sizing: Use your t-shirt size to determine your veil size. We respect that queens come in all sizes so if you do not see your size here, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to order one especially for you.
How to wear: Nobody wants bees in their bonnet! To keep curious bees from crawling into your veil, make sure that the fabric sits snugly over the tops of your shoulders (not down the sides), then use the adjustable drawstring to tighten the bodice.
Disclaimer: When worn correctly our veils offer great protection, however our veils do not offer 100% bee tight coverage like a full bee suit would. Use your best judgement for how much protective equipment you need to wear depending on the temperament of your bees.
