Here at NorCal bees we do our best to give back to the bees by rescuing bees that would otherwise be destroyed, breeding better stronger bees and educating the public. These miracle workers are responsible for pollinating one in every three bites of foods we consume! Sadly, because of pesticides, parasites, and malnutrition bees are dying off in alarming rates. If the trend continues entire food chains and webs may be at risk. That means big shortage on foods and other materials.
