Bees as pets, WHAT? Yes, just Google bees as pets and you will find that people have bonded with a bee. I would not even consider writing this post if it was not for Nepenthe Ohm from Facebook.
Nepenthe started her carpenter bee journey in May. She has been nursing this little guy for about 5 days now and tried to give him flowers, but he only drinks sugar water from her finger. He is not flying, but grooming regularly.
he was laying on the steps outside her front door, so she picked him up and put him in some plants. Two days later, he was upside down on the steps again, so she took him in and gave him sugar water, hoping he’d fly away once he was feeling better. He hasn’t tried to fly and seems very happy to be around her.
This is Albert (Einstein).
He loves flowers and sugar water.
Day 6 – still alive and kicking.
Giving everyone the beady eyeball.
Albert and I are heading home after a weekend break away.
He’s still drinking sugar water and grooming regularly.
Daily update: Day 9
Albert had 2 drops of sugar water for breakfast and now he’s taking a shower.
(I put little drops of fresh water on him, he seems to like it). So far so good.
Daily update: Day 11
Albert says “hello world!” Even though he’s eating less, he is still grooming. Such a precious boy.
Daily update: Day 18
Albert says, good morning friends! He had 2 drops of sugar water for breakfast this morning.
Day 22 – Albert just had a shower.
Did you know? Bees love the color blue and cluster plants like basil, lavender, and rosemary.
