Talkback: Bumblebee rescue

hi i found a bumble bee lying on the grass in the park yesterday, i picked it up and put it onto some flowers, it appeared to improve and flew off! i read somewhere that gardens should have somewhere for bees to take a drink. i always have little pots of water dotted around the place.

sounds  like red lillie beetle, their offspring cover themselves with their own excrement. i try to be organic, and pick off the beetles. maybe try to spry with a garlic and soap solution.
