Tried to rescue a Bee today... I am way too soppy... I fished it out of a pool of water that was probably alkaline due to the cement. I hope the little fella/girl is OK. I put it on a leaf over the fence but it fell into the bushes. It seemed to have some strength left in it so it might survive. Just gotta leave it and hope it survives - it probably has more chance in the bushes than it did in the cement water.
I do this a lot with bees - I never know if they survive or not... some are just too weak. I have tried sugar solution in the past with varying successes and fail rates - Sometimes they tuck in and sometimes they are too far gone..
I guess every little helps.
