Beekeeping at home is something that you can totally do, but before you jump in with both feet it is a good idea to educate yourself as much as you can first on the topic. There are a lot of different things to learn and different scenarios that you should be prepared to handle. Learning all that you can before you start is a good idea so that you can avoid too many painful stings, wasting of the honey, and even losing the hive to mismanagement.
There are books and websites like this one from where you can learn and there are also plenty of videos online about the topic that can help you get the best start. There are even groups and clubs you can join and classes that you can take, both online and in your community.
