I have found very nice articles for starting backyard beekeeping:
- DIY Backyard Beekeeping: A Guide for Beginners, Popular Mechanics
- Backyard Beekeeping for Beginners, Mother Earth News
- Is Beekeeping For Me?, Bee Thinking
- Advice for Beginner Beekeepers, Michael Bush
Please read these articles and watch some YouTube videos about backyard beekeeping.
