LACBA - Help Needed!


Welcome to the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association request for Help Needed. We now have an LACBA Help Needed page located in our MEMBERSHIP CENTER (right Sidebar) .

The LACBA is a volunteer organization composed of commercial and urban beekeepers, bee hobbyists, and bee enthusiasts.  With the increased awareness of the plight of honeybees, the growth of Colony Collapse Disorder, the legalization of beekeeping in the City of Los Angeles, the need for honey bees in our food chain and the importance they play in our lives, our club membership has quadrupled in size over the past few years. 

One of the benefits of LACBA membership is the opportunity to learn how to care for honey bees from experienced beekeepers. Another benefit is to share our experience with others.  Requests for our skills, experience, knowledge, and services have increased and we find we are in need of LACBA members to help with our ongoing efforts to meet those requests.
