"Stand Up" Hoods Protect Face From Small Insects
The same quality and design in headgear for beekeepers is now available to protect gardeners and outdoor folks from midges and no-seeums. The Handy-Hood from B.J. Sherriff of Cornwall, England, is available through Sacramento Beekeeping Supplies.
  Ive had calls over the years from people who work outside or drive tractor and want face protection, says Nancy Stewart, owner of the California company.
  She notes that the design is similar to the beekeeping hood with stiff boning in the cotton to keep the mask away from the face. The mesh on the Handy Hood has a hexagon shape and has soft screening for good visibility.
  The white hoods come in one size and sell for $56.95. The cotton polyester fabric is sturdy, but lightweight enough so its not too hot to wear.
  B.J. Sherriff is the original designer of the beekeepers hood, Stewart notes, and their hand cut products have a reputation for being top quality.
