Bee rescue

Avery found a bee on his sock on the floor of his bedroom. He decided to rescue it, so he got some paper and tape and made a bee trap. We cut some “pollen” – bottlebrush stems – to attract the bee, Avery set it on the floor about 3 feet away from the bee. However, the bee wasn’t motivated by the pollen. In fact, it might have been injured or dying. I scooped it up with a glass and card slid underneath. Outside, Avery put the trap is a good place and we put the bee inside the trap to be closer to the pollen.I would say that was a successful rescue!
