LA Council Considering Urban Beekeeping

ABC Eyewitness News    

The LA Council is considering legalizing backyard beekeeping in the city due to the decline of the honey bee.

[Note:  From William Lewis, President of the California State Beekeepers Association and past President of the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association: "I am certainly in support of bees in the city, but only if Best Management Practices, which was provided to the city planners, are adhered to which means "known gentle genetics".  I don't think this can be achieved by keeping local feral colonies.  I have not seen proof that they are well behaved and in my experience, the ferals I catch have turned out to be very aggressive."]
