HOW TO RESCUE A BUMBLEBEE

by Jonah Powers (aged 9½)

When you come across a discouraged exhausted Bombus terrestris (buff tailed bumblebee) here is what you should do.

(1 Mix water and sugar together.
(2 Place some on a flat surface with the bee
.


(3 You will notice your bee unfurling her proboscis to consume the liquid
(4 After some time you will discover your bee is becoming more energetic
(5 Now your bee is ready to say “toodle -oo!”

Thank you for contributing to National Insect Week, Jonah.
