the Bee Thirst Aid Kit!
Revive a Bee with your own Bee Revival Kit.
What else can I use Revive a Bee for?
It's not just bumble bees that get into trouble and sometimes need a helping hand. There are other important pollinators you can feed the syrup to including tired butterflies or moths.
How can I tell if a Bee is tired?
In some cases it will be clear when a bee is in need of an energy boost. If you've rescued a bee from drowning or if you're quite far away from any large natural habitats or places with lots of flowers then there's a high chance the bee is exhausted and lost. Having said that just like us humans these little guys do need a rest sometimes. After all it is mathematically impossible for bees to fly. To make sure the bee really does need help we suggest you first give nature a chance. Watch and wait for around 15 minutes to see what the bee does. If it doesn't fly away you can offer up Revive a Bee by leaving the bottle next to the bee or pouring some syrup out.
Will I get stung if I try to help a Bee?
A bee will only sting you if it feels threatened and not all bees will die if they sting. We only advise handling of bees when completely necessary and even then we ask that you take care of yourself and the bee to avoid any injury. If you're not confident handling insects don't try to pick up a bee.
Why didn't the bee drink the syrup?
There are a couple reasons why the bee might not drink the syrup. First of all the bee might simply be resting and just doesn't need a drink. The other reason could be the fact that bee is coming to the end of its life. The longest living (honey)bee is the queen bee, which can live for up to 3 years but the average lifespan of a worker bee can vary from 6 weeks to several months but drones will die almost immediately after mating.
Is Revive a Bee suitable for Children?
The Revive a Bee kit and keyring contain small parts that could be a choking hazard. Not suitable for children under 5. While we would encourage children of all ages to get involved with the environment and help save the bees, using one of these kits must be done with adult supervision. Important note to parents. Please make sure you're aware of any allergies your child has before encouraging them to interact with bees.
Is Revive a Bee Environmentally Friendly?
Yes. Not only do we give back to the bee community but we do everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint. This includes trying to source materials from few suppliers and avoiding plastic where possible. Not only is Revive a Bee REUSABLE when Refilled... But the Backing Card is made from Environmentally Friendly 'Plantable Seed Paper' and the protective sleeve is a compostible wrapper.
