I know this doesn't have much to do with bee keeping, and I didn't know what category to put it in.. Anyway, I recently found an injured male carpenter bee..It cannot fly, and doesn't move much, but I know it's alive.It's been on a clover plant for several days, until I decided to take it inside after it rained.. I put it in a small cage, with a few flowers (parsley,unknown red flowers..etc) and I am not sure if it did eat..
I've tried to give it 1 tbsp. of water in 2 tbsp. of sugar, yet it wouldn't drink it...I put the same mix in other flowers, and it seemed to put it's head inside..When I came back home, it was on another flower..
It cleans itself and has been a bit more active recently, but there are no more flowers that I can find..It won't eat the sugar water much, although I think I should try serving it another way..Anyway, what can I do to help it, and what should I feed it?
