Here is a selection of bee suit suppliers ranked (sort of) from most expensive to cheapest.
Which suit you choose is up to you of course and we cannot decide this for you. As with most products you get what you pay for but there are bargains at the lower end of the price range. Please contact the supplier for latest pricing and advice on sizing. As an alternative to a full suit, separate jackets/veils and trousers are also available from these suppliers. Check too for any delivery charges and for any special offers, for example free gloves which are offered from time to time by some suppliers.
Quotes after a supplier’s name are from the suppliers’ own website and are given in good faith. No recommendation is made by Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association for these suppliers however suppliers are only included in this list where we have had predominately good feedback about a product from members.
