APALACHEE BEEKEEPERS ASSOCIATION
Sam, bees don't like dark colors, especially black! You might want to use the "beekeeper gloves" local folks sell or simple gardening gloves. My bees go for my black watch band if I don't keep it covered. Ouch!
You can also cover your black gloves with a lighter weight white latex glove and all will be fine. That's what I do.
I've seen blue and purple nitrile gloves for a decent price at Harbor Freight too.
Don’t use them. Bees don’t like black
