Bees and wasps
« on: May 26, 2010, 05:54:19 PM »
Hey dudes,

Today I witnessed a very small miracle....(well it was to me)  8)

I found what I thought was a dying bumble bee in a box at work....very lethargic and on it's last legs so to speak....

Now just the other day I'd heard a radio show which said if you find such a bee try and feed it honey or sugar water and they may revive!?

Anyhoo thought I'd give it a go ...tried a spoonful of honey on the little critter....and would you bloody believe it the little thing seemed to get stuck for a few minutes....then took off into the air with a mighty Buzzz...I was so happy....a little miracle in a rather mundane day of work.

Now....onto wasps.....They will sting without warning and can be pretty aggressive even when not provoked....however "if you kill one a hundred come to the funeral" (old Norfolk saying) the reason for this is that when they die they release a pheromone that attracts other wasps...so the more you kill the more will be attracted to the spot!

I don't swat anything and am left alone!  :D Karma?

Peace to the insects dudes.  8)

Thanks for sharin dude! I too have seen the odd bumble bee looking pretty knackered, now I know what to do. Been thinking about gettin some bamboo to attach to a south facing wall in the garden as apparently bees will make a home in them, bearing in mind their decline of late, also didn't realise there were so many different types either. Hail to the bees! 
It's a brave person who slacks when there's plenty to do.

Actually Bees are surviving better in British cities than they are in commercial and rural areas:

independent.co.uk bees-take-flight-to-the-city-after-fall-in-rural-hive-numbers
,

And there is a movement to encourage people to keep bees in cities as well:

bbc.co.uk.

I have been pondering getting one of these Plastic Beehives myself.

BTW you can only buy bees by exchanging them for gold traditionally, Bees are an alchemical symbol of gold.

Actually I am a great follower of instructables.com. Now not everything is any good on the site but just found Bee Hive in a Bucket.

Get out there Dudes and save the Bees.

I believe that the American commercial Bee industry is suffering from similar problems.

Don't tell anyone but if you right click the image and click on "save Image" you can have a copy.  ;D

Actually the original is on flickr. stumble Upon threw it up just after you posted the original thread, must be the season for Wasp whinging.  ;D

Hey Meekon you are so wise...and I thank you!

While at work I printed out 18 of those little A4 beauties and have now delivered them to every site in Norfolk!

Now whether the crazy fucks read it and understand is up to them!

Cheers Dude!

In Peace
