Humans need bees just as much as they need us

Next time you have a swarm of bees in your backyard, don’t call the exterminator. 

Bees Up Top beekeeper Jessie Baker rescues bees and re-homes them in beehives on rooftops around Auckland’s CBD. 

The city might sound like a weird place to have hives, but the urban landscape means bees are away from harmful pesticides that are used on farms - and are one of the biggest threats to bees. 

Re: News chatted to Jessie about what else we can be doing to help save the bees.
