I have been working as a beekeeper for the past 5 years.
I work on a huge farm that has millions and millions of honey bees.
We produce commercial honey and we also rent out the bees to farmers in the area. I think the job is both fun and interesting. I also find it rewarding to care for the honey bees. The last time I had to round up the honey bees, they were temperamental and I ended up getting stung a couple of times. They got me right through my beekeeper’s hat. I decided it might be time for an upgrade on my uniform. I went to an online retail website that sells products made for beekeepers and their protection. I planned to buy a new hat, but I ended up getting a ventilated beekeeper jacket. The jacket has double Stitch pockets, brass zippers, and a removable veil for storage and easy cleaning. The Beekeeper jacket was a bit more money than a traditional hat, but I had a 10% off coupon from the retail website and that helped defer some of the costs. I wear the beekeeper jacket anytime I have to round up the bees to go somewhere. It almost seems like they can’t tell when they are going to be relocated. Any other time they seem happy to go to their hives. When I’m dressed for collection, they throw a fit. Honey bees are a very interesting subset of creatures. They don’t sting like hornets or yellow jackets and we wouldn’t survive without them pollinating plants, vegetables, and fruits. They absolutely provide an invaluable service to humans.
