I live in Katy, Tx a suburb of Houston but we have a farm north of Houston. Last summer we found 3 hives of bees at our farm. We had a guy come out that was going to try to move one to a box, but it didn't happen. I bought the box, the books and have talked with another bee keeper in town. I want to get started this year so I'm just looking to learn as much as I can.
