if a bumblebee comes into my kitchen and tries to get out by the window I gently place a large clear dry glass over it and slide a thin piece of card between the glass and the window. I can then take the bee outside and immediately release it.
I also place a small amount of moist sugar on the floor next to any bee that I find outside that seems distressed. Often this appears to give a boost and enable it to fly off again. I like to do my bit to help bees if I can.
