A bee’s life was saved after she fell in a honey extractor thanks to a caring beekeeper and the other bees in her hive.
The amazing moment was captured on video by a beekeeper in Covert Township, Michigan who wrote:
“We are bee keepers in small town in South West Michigan. Our small farm is located within a blueberry field where bees have lots of flower to pollinate. They produce amazing honey from blueberries in the spring time that has rich dark color.”
“A couple weeks ago while I was harvesting honey, one poor bee fell into honey extractor and I could not let this hard working girl die. I rescued her and put her by the hive entry, knowing that her sisters would help her.”
And the other bees did. They go over to the injured bee’s side and begin to tend to her.
The beekeeper knew he had to capture the moment on film. He told ViralHog, “I ran to grab my phone and decided to capture this amazing scene of how they clean and help her. Unfortunately my phone wasn’t fully charged and I wasn’t able to record whole process and ending, it took approximately 30 minutes for them to clean her and at the end she flew away.”
What a remarkable moment to have caught on film!
