The Super Bee: Walk and Talk

Make Tank, 3-5 Paris St, Exeter EX1 2JB

Hear the fascinating story of a new super bee.

This is a gentle walking tour around Rougemont and Northernhay Gardens in Exeter.

The parasitic Varroa mite has spread across the world. It’s been the prime threat to honey bees in a bitter war for the last 50 years.

Your guide is scientist Dr Thomas O’Shea-Wheller from the University of Exeter.

He’ll be chatting about a new super bee being bred to resist this mite in a rigorous new programme that will help the future of bees and us humans who depend on them.

The walk will start outside Make Tank Art Gallery, Paris Street Exeter and will last about 45 minutes.

Dress appropriately for the weather.
