County of Los Angeles Conrad Burton, Apiary/AHB/Haz Mat Program August 1, 2014
The 2014 Annual Apiary Registration was due on December 31, 2013. If you have not registered your hive, PLEASE REGISTER NOW. In Los Angeles County the fee is only $10 fee per beekeeper (no matter how many hives you have in LA County).
Anyone who keeps bees in California must register with their local County Agricultural Commissioner (CAC) on a yearly basis. There are many reasons to make sure your bees are "on the books." Your County Agricultural Commissioner can be of assistance in:
- dealing with neighbors and local regulatory agencies
- notifications about local pesticide/herbicide applications
- referrals for swarm captures if you want them

At a nominal fee per beekeeper, regardless of the number of colonies or apiaries, it's well worth it.
To help you out, we've included links to the downloadable 2014 Annual Apiary Registration Form and Notification Letter (which has useful information on keeping bees in Los Angeles County). See our Hive Registration page for additional information.
