David Attenborough urges fans to save the bees
Sir David Attenborough has warned fans that humans will only have four years to live should bees become extinct. So far his Facebook post, which you can read below, has had 133K reactions and 442K shares.
“This time of year bees can often look like they are dying or dead, however, they’re far from it. Bees can become tired and they simply don’t have enough energy to return to the hive which can often result in being swept away. If you find a tired bee in your home, a simple solution of sugar and water will help revive an exhausted bee.”
He has shared a simple home remedy to help save tired bees in the summer by leaving a teaspoon of sugar and water to help rehydrate them, and has encouraged everyone to share this vital message.
Some deaths could easily be prevented, as bees running low on energy are often mistaken for dead, when in fact they are just in need of rehydration.
The life hack went down a storm with fans who flooded the comments with pictures and videos of them using the method at home, with some great results.
