hello. I'm in the Texoma area of North Texas. Just started out with bee's last year. I only have the one hive right now. removed it from the wall of my neighbors shed, with help from a friend who has been teaching me about bee keeping. hope to get a few more hives for honey, and wax for candles. I use bee wax candles in my lanterns at the civil war reenactments, and would like to start making them myself.
