Hello and Welcome!
I'm sure you'll find this forum to be an informative place to learn about bees and beekeeping.
I recommend that you get involved with a local club. Clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes and are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. Hopefully one of these is near you:http://www.michiganbees.org/links/
Don't forget to update your profile to include your location. Much of beekeeping is location-specific, so we'll be able to answer your questions better if we know where you are.
