What we do
Bee Capture is a small group of local beekeepers in Los Angeles who establish and maintain backyard or rooftop honeybee hives for people who want bees on their property. We charge a flat annual fee to set up the woodenware and take care of the hive, and if you want one-on-one mentoring, that is included! Do you want a better fruit crop from your trees and garden, or do you want to learn beekeeping? This is the best way to do it. We service most of the metropolitan LA area.
One way we get our bees is by removing local colonies from places they are not wanted. However we also provide stock from bee breeders. What your needs are will be determined when we come out to your place and do an on-site evaluation. Urban beekeeping is on the rise, and Los Angeles is a great place to do it. Bees thrive in our sunny LA basin, where so many bee-friendly trees and gardens abound!
How we work
First we come out to your property and assess your location to make sure you have an appropriate spot for a hive. We provide the boxes for housing the bees, along with the bees themselves, as part of the Annual Maintenance Agreement. Bees in our locale have a 12-month year and so we “inspect”, or look in on their hive, every month. That way we can keep them at their healthiest and most productive!
