12.27.2010 Beekeeping: Completely Illegal in L.a.
L.A. is just more complicated than most cities because the laws are super confusing and made up of many municipalities that morphed over the years into the greater L.A. area.
According to the New York Times, The beekeeping bans stem from municipalities trying to remove any trace of agriculture after WWII, showing signs of progress. (Shevory, Kristina. “The Beekeeper Next Door” New York Times, December 8, 2010)
