Pump Shed Cutout - Part 2 - YouTube


Eight days after removing the bees from the pump shed I'm back to check that they've moved into their new home and the queen is in there and laying.

They are double tough Nitrile gloves. Have a look at all my videos I have used them for years. Buy from any safety equipment store. [URL="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsOIfTvbPtD-33xYh9du6kg"]Trevor Gillbanks[/URL]

[USER=3755]@Daniel Hobman[/USER] the video is by [USER=7]@Paul Jenkin[/USER] . My only contribution was to watch it. But what Trev commented, double tough nitrile gloves. Blackwoods sell them, and any other safety supplier you care to name

Yeah, anything woven is no good. So far I've had 2 stings total, one was through the finger of a suede tig welding glove. Have yet to try the nitrile gloves myself, but with upcoming honey I will be, tig gloves were ok for keeping propolis off my hands and stopping (most) stings but honey is going to mess them up big time.

[USER=4944]@Desmo[/USER] [USER=3755]@Daniel Hobman[/USER] beekeepers get stung. Get used to it. Slow down and use more smoke.

To be honest [USER=2597]@Rob Stockley[/USER] 2 in 2 months isn't going to take much getting used to. I used to get stung more just riding the motorbike every day than I do beekeeping. Smoker is much easier to keep lit with the bernzamatic propane torch that the Mrs got me for Xmas too :)

Whoops, haven't been here for a few days. [USER=3755]@Daniel Hobman[/USER] as Trev said, they're the double tough nitrile ones. Longer cuff on them and thicker than normal ones. They won't stop all stings but they do seem to stop some at least. I mostly wear them so I don't get covered in propolis, and on a job like this it stops the honey too.
