How can you help a dying bee?

Nice to see there are decent people out there.

Bees are very important to the survival of plants and fruit

trees, which provide us humans with food and oxygen.

Bees are actually not aggressive insects. They will not attack

humans for no reason, unlike wasps.

A bee approaching a human is just curious about that person and

means no harm.

Bumble bees are the most passionate and peaceful of the bee

species.

Unfortunately sometimes bees get hurt by other animals or become

too cold. When this happens, the best thing you can really do is

pick the bee up (not with your hands, it may mistake you for a

threat) and place it in a flower bed, or at least out the way of

any immediate danger.

Bees are very social creatures. It's not uncommon to see a small

group of bees approach another bee who has been injured or is

dying. When they do, you need to be careful, because they could

mistake you for a threat and sting you to defend their injured

friend.

Some species of bee are protected by law in most of the

civilised world. So killing them is a criminal offence.
