How to save a tired bee

If you find a bumblebee which appears to be struggling, it may be that it is just resting, particularly if the bee is a queen in early spring.
If you think the bee is struggling the best thing to do is gently put the bee onto a bee-friendly flower.
If the bee is not near any flowers mix 50/50 white sugar and water to give the bumblebee a one-off energy boost with one or two drops, providing the carbohydrates it needs to fly.
