    You could use the Tyvek coveralls if you wanted to but they are not necessary and would probably be uncomfortable. Almost any kind of long sleeve shirt with the beekeeper’s hood and gloves are protection enough.

    I wouldn’t trust a Tyvek vs. mad bees. They’re not made to repel a bee’s stinger. They’re made to protect the skin from non-penetrating things like liquids and powders.
    If you’re not allergic to bees, you could give it a try but I think you’d be putting your life at risk.
