The Richmond Beekeepers Association is dedicated to the preservation of the art and science of beekeeping.  Established in 1949, it is the oldest beekeeping association in the Richmond Virginia area.  Members often share their knowledge and love of honeybees by presenting programs to interested groups.  If you are thinking of becoming a beekeeper, RBA will provide a valuable resource of experienced keepers who are always willing to share their knowledge.  Monthly programs will help you gain the knowledge you will need to keep your bees healthy and happy. If you are already a beekeeper, the association can give you a community of people who share you interest.

    Thousands of bees, I think honey, just swarmed into a large tree in my front yard. Obviously I don’t want them there permanently, so can somebody come and round them up?

    How do I post bee equipment for sale? I no longer have the time to competently care for bees. I have 5 deeps, 11 supers, lots of frames, used and new, wax for deeps and supers, swarm box, along with all associated tools acquired over 10 years. Am willing to offer good pricing, especially if you but it all.

    How do we keep lots of honey bees from swarming and drinking from our pool every day? I live in Hopkins
