Picked up some poor girls left in the rain.

I pick them up by a wing and gently place them into a plastic tub( the kind you get dips in) in the bottom I put a piece of paper towel. And drop some sugar syrup. For them to suck up and give them strength.
When I bring them in you would think they are dead. I look for the ones that have their tongue in if out they are dead.
I warm the bottom of the tub with the warmth of my hand. Then you see a little flutter of an antenna and in a few minutes sometimes 20 they are up and slurping then come cleaning and walking around.
I put them in the dark of a drawer and if weather permitting open the lid down by the hive and see them fly. Bliss.
