Lompoc Valley Beekeepers Association Bee Removal Service

LVBKA is a group of volunteers committed to public education on the topic of bees and beekeeping. As a part of this mission, we have a staff of qualified individuals that can remove bee swarms or, in some cases, established colonies. Although we do not have fixed prices for this service, the club does accept donations. This money is used to defray the costs beekeepers incur during the bee removal process (transportation costs, tools, bee hive equipment, feed, treatment, etc.). Donations are also used to replenish club owned assets (specialized vacuum, medication, safe transport nets, etc.).

Contributions can be made directly to the beekeeper by check or cash or sent directly to the club where the funds will be divided between the beekeeper and the LVBKA.

Contributions may also be made directly through Paypal:
  1. For donors who possess a PayPal account of their own, please reference to make a direct payment.
  2. For donors who DO NOT have a PayPal account, please donate here.

Please note that we are not a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) and that any gift is not tax deductible.
