In the words of Mary Poppins, and now indeed David Attenborough via his recent facebook campaign; without bees humanity would die out, as soon as within four years.
Bees play a huge part in our eco-system as one of our key pollinators and are responsible for the production of one-third of all the food we eat. To simply leave a spoonful of a water and sugar mix in your garden will go a long way to rejuvenating our winged friends; being still doesn’t necessarily mean they are past their best, they just need a helping hand!
“In the last five years the bee population has dropped by 1/3,” the facebook post explains. “If bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, humans would have just four years left to live.
“This time of year bees can often look like they are dying or dead, however, they’re far from it. Bees can become tired and they simply don’t have enough energy to return to the hive which can often result in being swept away.
“If you find a tired bee in your home, a simple solution of sugar and water will help revive an exhausted bee. Simply mix two tablespoons of white, granulated sugar with one tablespoon of water, and place on a spoon for the bee to reach. You can also help by sharing this post to raise awareness.”
