A very important package arrived on the doorstep- the bee gear!! A beekeeper has a few essential tools and we got ours from Dadant and Son's.
First up is the hive tool. This will help in prying the supers apart after the bees have put propolis everywhere.

And of course, the outfit. Now I know you are expecting a full white suit- but if I'm going to spend $100 on an outfit, its not going to be on a boring (albeit protective) white suit! ThatGuy and I are living on the edge and just bought gloves and a veil. Of course we will wear long pants and long sleeves with the bees.

Can you believe this pose? I think she knows what a camera is.
