  • Jacket Sizing

    Jackets should not fit snugly. You will want some room inside the jacket should a honey bee end up inside with you!
    Small: 46"-48" chest (Fits most people 5'0"-5'7", 110-145lb)

    Medium: 50"-52" chest (Fits most people 5'5"-5-9", 135-165lb)

    Large: 54"-56" chest (Fits most people 5'8"-6'1", 155-200lb)

    Glove Sizing

    Gloves size is determined by measuring across the knuckles, not including the thumb (i.e. the widest point of the palm). You want your gloves to fit snugly as the leather will stretch slightly over time.

    3" - 3 1/8" Small

    3 1/4" - 3 5/8" Medium

Great Customer Service

My starter kit took about a week to arrive, and the smoker was backordered (so I'm still waiting for it). However, I really appreciated the level of customer service I received communicating the deal with the smoker, and answering my questions about when it would arrive. Will gladly purchase online from Bee Thinking again. :)

We purchased the flow hive

We purchased the flow hive and the starter kit. We won't be able to populate the hive before spring, but so far we have been very happy with the equipment. Thank you.

Sugar Pine is our value wood option. Beautiful, strong, takes paint or sealant well, and is more stable and lighter than more common ponderosa pine.

Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.

All of our wood is sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
