The Wake County Beekeepers Association was formed to provide a forum for hobbyists and professionals to meet and share one another’s experience and expertise with beekeeping.  Our guiding goal is to advance the practice of modern beekeeping in the local area.

Need help getting rid of bees?
People often call the WCBA when a swarm of honeybees enters their lives. We have many members who are willing and able to remove swarms for free. Learn more about what to do and who to call.
