I bought the beekeeping pants early in my beekeeping career, a lightweight white fabric designed to keep honeybees from stinging.
I may have worn them once since I bought them, preferring either a pair of white chinos or worn jeans with a beekeeping jacket and built-in veil.
When I heard the March 24, 2016 weather forecast for a deep frost, I decided to wrap my blooming compact fruit trees to try to salvage the blooms. As I ran out of towels and lightweight blankets, the pants caught my eye. This is a compact dwarf apple tree wrapped up for the frosty evening.
If you are a hobby beekeeper, skip the pants when buying your beekeeping clothing. Your trees may wear them more often than you do!
