How to save a bumble bee
So this post isn’t entirely fitting with this blog. But I think it’s important because bumble bees are cute and their genus name is Bombus which is also very cute.
A very pretty lady once told me how to save sick and injured bumble bees. Often the bees get exhausted and you’ll see a poor fluffy bumble bee crawling along, struggling to fly away. So sad.
Make a tiny amount of sugar syrup with a teaspoon of sugar and a couple of teaspoons of water. Pour it right in front of the bee. The bee will detect the sugar syrup and stick out it’s tiny little tongue and drink it. After a minute or so the bee will have enough strength to fly away.
Seriously and honestly, this works. And it is so cute to watch the bee revive.
