Found a big queen buff tailed bumble just sitting on the car park at work.
She was barely alive, just moving her legs a little bit, and I picked her up. It was late afternoon, the sun was lowering and she'd probably been caught out by the cold.
I took her in my hands, and wandered off to where I knew there were dandelions, and settled her down into one.
i very much doubt she survived, she was pretty far gone. But at least I tried.

well done for rescuing her, I hope she survivesReplyDelete
Simon a dot of sugar water or honey revives them really quickly. They burn through energy at such a rate that if the day gets a bit cold and there is no nectar handy they quite literally run out of fuel.ReplyDelete
Being at work, no bee rescue solution to hand. Sadly.ReplyDelete
