Bees are vital pollinators in the food chain, with some 70 per cent of crops in the UK either dependent on, or benefiting from, visits from the humble bee.
The collapse of colonies has led to all sorts of scientific attempts to save the humble bee, including a bid by Warwick University's Dr Dave Chandler who developed a fungal footbath at the entrance to the hive, dosing the bees with a fungus that's deadly to the crab-likvarroa mite.
Visitors will also be able to get an insight into the world of bee-keeping, as members of the Warwickshire Beekeepers Association will be bringing along live hives and a range of products that the humble bee produce.
