Hello my name is Todd and this is first post in forum here I would also like to say this is my first year in beekeeping also. I have read and studied it for a few years now and this year I bought 2 hives and 2 packages of bees.Well I have to say reading and hands on are completely different as you all know.But I did get both packages in without getting stung which I felt pretty good about..I look forward to being in forum and hope to meet some really nice people. Oh I forgot to say im from Texas
