    Default Lone Bee

    I do not have a Bee hive as i am yet to live in a place where i can sustain one. Yet there are some local ones in my area, just before, i was walking back to my room when i noticed a lone bee on a door frame. This is during the middle of the night and i'm wondering if this is odd behaviour or not? should i capture it and then release in tomorrow to make sure it survives or is this normal?

    Sometimes bees will get caught out after dark and will shelter in place, or can be attracted to a light. Leave her alone and she will return to the hive with dawn, unless she is injured or worn out, in which case there is nothing you can do.

    I'd bet you're yet to live in a place that can NOT sustain one...

    I often find one that will come to the front light at night, my hives are 50 yard from my door.
    Look around outside you may have a hive within a short distance.
