Would you try and save a honey bee?
    #14172256 - 03/23/11 09:48 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

This little bugger landed above my back door. It won't move, even when I pet it. It is 55f degrees out, a bit of rain and a low of 35-37f.



Wondering if I should try and move it to a warmer more insulated spot or try and feed it some sugar water with a big ol syringe or just let it bee.

Not sure if it is a lost bee or one that was just got caught in a bad climate. I don't think it is a male, is it, is it bee mating season?

It's probably already dead?

Let it bee :zappa:


But you should totally try and save him. Honey bees are important.

it's may be a worker close to retirement age, they typically dont get caught
out after dark, I'd keep it over night and feed it but I'm weird like that.
I'd also tie a bright string to it's leg and follow it back to the hive

Honey Bee, yes. Carpenter Bee.... well there's a reason why I keep a tennis racket on my back porch.

Gotta spray some dust up in the wood trim in a few weeks. I've been noticing a couple of carpenter bees in the past week since it's been so warm.

I did it a few months ago when I painted the trim and I was seeing dead carpenter bees all over the fucking place. So the shit works, but they are nearly impossible to get rid of.

I live in town right now, if it flew in almost any direction I would lose it. With any luck an offer will bee excepted tomorrow and I can move out in the country.

We had a swarm land in our front yard last summer/fall(I think). It caught me off gaurd, I kept hearing this weird ass noise than I noticed this swirling storm off bees. Luckily in that state they are not aggressive at all. It stayed the night but left before a bee keeper could collect it.


I might move it to another spot where it will be warmer. I don't know I don't want to injure it.

you need to provide them a place to do their thing, a bee house for carpenter bees

try to lure them away from where they're boring

We have a few carpenter bees living in some wood right next to our house. They are pretty neat and they are great for pollinating some garden plants, I forget which ones right now.

Grew up in a woodstove heated post and beam, for some reason they always went for the posts and beams and not the multiple cords of wood we stacked up behind the house. Sounds like a good idea, though, maybe our woodpile was just too far away from the house to do any good.

give a home for the night. make some sugar water and put it in a little cap inside a Tupperware with the bee and let it back outside in the sun tomorrow. 
Its an Italian female worker bee BTW and yes here in Cali it is mating season.

Thats the thing. I have tons of loose wood and shit like that in my back yard about 100ft from my house. Stuff I use for my fire pit.

I've had problems with them for the past 3-4 years. Got some shit that's a dust, made by Bayer. When I painted all the wood trim on the house late last summer I did a HEAVY application and within a few days there were dead carpenter bees all over the place. I counted at least 100. But the nests are still up there.

So next week I'm going to use the rest of the powder (can't remember what it's called) to hopefully drive the rest out or kill them.

I don't have a problem with bees, especially since carpenter bees don't sting. But they are HUGE and every time I go on the back porch they are always buzzing around.

I brought out my old ass tennis racket again and left it on the back porch. Last year, sometimes in the course of smoking a cigarette I'd hit between 5-8 of them. It's fun to send those fuckers flying 30 feet with a good wack, but they are starting to bore through the trim and holes are appearing.

Also, in the height of their activity, it leaves brown streaks coming down from where the nests are.

The powder seemed to work the last time I applied it, but I had a boom lift to help me (while painting). Getting to all those spots with a ladder is kinda scary.

I have this applicator with a long tube and almost like an air bellows that shoots it up into the nooks and crannys. I really do hope this second application will do some good.

At least they don't sting, but man those fuckers are about the size of a quarter and are annoying as fuck.

I just brought it in and now it is going crazy in the little container. It tried to escape into the kitchen. I think it is warm now. Can't feed it or it will escape.

Should I release it, you think it could make it home?

Wait I have a syringe.

guess I will feed it then release it in the morning.

Oh S. Oregon.

Stick it in the freezer for about 15 minutes (won't kill it, just slow down it's metabolism)

Then tie a some dental floss or sewing thread around it, wait for it to warm up and then you can walk it like a dog.

BTW, I've done this before. It's cool as hell to have a bee on a string. Especially when you are at a party.
