Los Angeles

The Best Bees Company is a full-service beekeeping operation. We install and manage beehives for residences and businesses in Los Angeles and select markets nationwide.

We’ve been operating in Los Angeles since beekeeping was legalized in 2015. We currently cover all of LA County, with beehives in Hollywood, Pasadena and Bel Air. Our expert staff maintains hives year-round with experience and safety in mind.

Los Angeles is Bee Friendly

Los Angeles is a great environment for bees! With surprisingly diverse flora, our Los Angeles beehives produce more honey and live longer.

The city is very supportive of beekeeping. A vibrant urban farming community, green-minded residents, and LEED-certified business owners are finding that honeybees bring life to the Sunshine State.

Envisioning Los Angeles
at its best for bees

As leading beekeepers, we do more than service beehives, we gather data that’s helping us to positively affect the health of Los Angeles’ bees. Our beekeepers closely observe beehive conditions throughout the season, and through DNA analysis of honey, give us valuable information on plant diversity, environmental conditions, and pesticide exposure. Our analysis of local honey has shown us that urban environments include eight times more flowering plant species than suburban and rural areas and that this is a key factor in bee health in Los Angeles.
