We have bumble bees nesting in some steps in our garden (better than when they nested in an old vent in the house wall - kept finding them in the kitchen and they were big red bottomed ones ) and they seem to be getting worn out at the mo and often lethargic on the patio and unable to fly - kids have all been trained to pick flowers for them and then maybe move them to a cooler/ shadier area complete with flowerheads to see if that will help. Not sure if what we are doing is the correct thing, but most seem to pick up, thankfully
Are you meant to put a spoon with sugar water near them?
