One of the most interesting facts about bees that you ever knew is that you can bring a bee back to life again. It may just be resting if you find a bumblebee that appears to be struggling, especially if it is a queen bee in the early spring. The best thing to do is gently place the bee onto a flower that is friendly to bees if you believe it is struggling. If there aren’t any flowers that are good for bees around, make a 50/50 mixture of white sugar and water to give the bumblebee a temporary energy boost and the carbs it needs to fly. Offer a drop or two of sugar water up to the bee’s front end on a teaspoon or an upside-down drink cap in a protected area, and give it time to heal.
