Hello and Welcome!
This forum is great place to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the tutorials on the main Beemaster page, and check your local library for books & videos on beekeeping. Also, get involved with a local beekeeping club:http://www.masterbeekeeper.org/resources/beegroups.htm
Clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes, and are good places to find mentors and get connected with local beekeepers.
Lastly, don't forget to update your profile with your location. Much of beekeeping is location specific, so knowing where you are will help us answer your questions.
