Welcome to LBKA

Welcome to the web site of the Liverpool and Merseyside Beekeepers Association (LBKA).
We are amateur beekeepers in the Merseyside area and are affiliated to the BBKA (British Beekeeping Association).

Swarms
Sorry, but we cannot help with bumble bees in walls, roof spaces, sheds etc.
Please only contact us if you have a swarm of honey bees –
but first read the information on the Swarm or bees in building page.

The NBU has wanted to remind us of high Varroa levels throughout the country.

Meetings
We hold monthly meetings with talks on various aspects of beekeeping from visiting speakers and practical beekeeping demonstrations. These meetings are an opportunity to meet fellow beekeepers, share knowledge and ask for advice.
Beginners’ courses are usually run in the New Year, for those thinking of taking up beekeeping.

For more information or to become a member either visit us at one of our monthly events or contact us with your enquiry. Email to contact@liverpoolbeekeepers.co.uk
