A British community development worker has invented a ‘survival kit’ for bees, and the prototype has shown success at reviving wearied insects.
Bees have notoriously fast metabolisms and quickly run out of energy when out retrieving pollen. In the urban environment pollinating plants can be few and far between, making the task even more difficult.
To address the issue, Norwich local Dan Harris created a credit-card style packcontaining three sachets of beekeepers’ formula sugar solution. The sugar hit can be a life-saver for an exhausted insect, and the handy pack can be kept in a wallet or pocket when out and about.
