depending on how serious you want to do it the equipment can be a bit pricey, if you want to do it properly. Otherwise start by purchasing a bee hive
(it's preferable to find a second hand one to catch your first swarm, as the traces of honey that remains can naturally attract the swarm.)
Go around your area to try and find natural swarms (bees have "mating" spots) and place your bee hive there.
Also purchase yourself a suit of course, and offer your services on lets say craigslist offering to get rid of swarms in peoples houses, for free.
You'll need a bee smoker to calm the bee then use a decent sized hoover to catch them (it doesn't kill them) you won't catch them all, but you only
need the queen and a fair amount of workers.
Or if you don't want to go through all the trouble of catching them (it can be a pain and probably won't work on the first try) you can buy a swarm
off a professional (about 150$ for a good one) and from that good swarm after a season you can separate them and make a new swarm and so on.
My father is an amateur bee keeper, and I have a phobia of bees wasps and whatnot lol.
