It’s now legal to keep bees inside Lafayette’s city limits.

Before the vote, beekeepers could only operate in the unincorporated areas of Lafayette Parish — a law discovered by City-Parish President Joey Durel after he sought out a beehive of his own.

“You can have bee hives in New York City, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lake Charles,” said City-Parish President Joey Durel. “And Lafayette decided 50 years ago we can’t have bees.”

Quarter-acre lots can now have up to two hives, with a maximum of eight hives allowed within an acre or more. Beekeepers must also provide water for the bees.
