How to safely capture a bee that’s trapped inside [VIDEO]

YAY! It’s summertime in Alaska! We can joyfully open our windows and doors. Uh oh. A bumblebee flew through the open window and is now trapped inside the house. Here’s a simple trick I use to free a trapped bumblebee from your home (or greenhouse) without killing it.

The best parts?

  • The method is less stressful for the bee.
  • It is much less stressful than the cover-it-with-a-jar and carrying it outside
  • It is more efficient, especially if the bee flies to the ceiling for a way out
  • You can create the “tool” from materials you have close at hand

But hey, it’s easier to describe it to you in my short YouTube video. You’ll see, step-by-step, how to free a bee. (Plus more cool stuff about bees):

Why should you save a bumblebee (or any bee!) from certain death?

“If the bee disappears from the surface of the Earth, man would have no more than four years left to live.”— Albert Einstein
