This woman was enjoying a hot summer day when she saw a small bee flailing around on the ground. She immediately knew that she needed to help him, or he would either get eaten alive or die from heat exhaustion. She gave him a sugar solution and tried to feed him using a q-tip, but the little guy didn’t seem to be doing well.

Many days passed with no sign of life, but this woman was determined not to give up on the bee. After many days of trying to nurture him back to life, one miraculous day, the bee finally perked up and started waving his legs around. She knew at that moment her perseverance was worth it! She brought him outside to get some fresh air, and as soon as the sun hit him, he came alive and started to buzz and return to the back of the house where his colony was located.

“In such a short amount of time, such a strong bond was formed between two completely different species. I’ve been a better person since that day,” said his rescuer.

There are many ways you can help bees in your community, such as planting bee-friendly plants in your garden, supporting organic farmers who do not use chemicals on their crops, and spreading the word about the importance of bees and their declining population!

If you would like to find out more, the Bumblebee Conservation Trust has lots of information and even explains how to identify bees in your backyard! The bees do so much for us. Acting to help protect them is the very least we can do!
