    I don't know how I've managed to not think of it but we used to ALWAYS keep electrolyte tabs with us when I was a firefighter in the summer months. Turnout gear and hot temps are not the easiest thing to deal with either. You might consider those or salt tabs if you are gonna be out in the bees for long, I was amazed at the difference they made for me and my hubby still takes them in the summer while he's working (welder).

    I maintain that the #1 injury for beekeepers is the injury to one's dignity and/or ego, which can occur in numerous and varied ways.
