Just started beekeeping in April, 2012. I was scared to death, but now I don't know what I ever did without the girls. I adore my bees; they're not just insects to me! Ha! I can't believe what a great source of info this site is, and I look forward to "meeting" many of you. I have two TBHs. I bought my bees from BeeWeaver in Texas. My queens are Elizabeth and Latifah, and both have been very forgiving hives, believe me. If I could accidentally drop, knock over, shake, vibrate, spill, bumble or otherwise interfere, believe me, I have done it. Live and learn.
