    Default greetings from the left coast

    Hi all-
    came to this forum via a google search for problems with a hive, which I will get into in the proper forum. I have had bees for several years, but just became a beekeeper last year. I was given a bunch of supers and frames several years ago and stored them in the back yard. Feral colonies moved in and I just left them alone, as it was illegal to keep bees in santa monica until Jan 2011. last summer the code enforcement guys came by and told me I had to register my bees or get rid of them. longer story short, I became the first registered beekeeper in Santa Monica.

    Welcome Buzz! As a builder who has worked in your city, I'm glad your bees are registered. They didn't make you fill out 50,000 forms did they?

    it was a real painless process once the animal control people figured out what the city council wanted them to do (took me 3 trips to their office). an animal control guy came out and took a few pictures, verified that I was in compliance and went away.
