How you can help bumblebees

If you find a bumblebee stranded or looking sleepy, they may need help to boost their energy levels with a simple sugar-water mix. Mix equal parts of white sugar and warm water then pour into a small container for me. If you place the bee next to flowers outside with the artificial mix this should help them on their way!

For more information on how you can help bees please visit the Bumblebee Conservation Trust website here
