The better half of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence granted nearly 15,000 honeybees access to their federal residence so they can live, grow and pollinate there. Earlier this week, #Karen Pence also placed the bee sanctuary on display at the #White House. Her intentions were to increase awareness regarding a decrease in the management of their colonies and how it negatively impacts agricultural productions in the United States. She stated that supervised honey bee settlements incorporate a minimum of $15 billion per year in crop value. The colonies do this by growing yields and ensuring top-quality harvests.

Pence delivers the statistics

Be that as it may, Pence also noted that there had been a drastic decline in the colonial developments of honeybees within the past year.

As a result, the U.S. faces a detrimental issue when it comes to Americans being able to continue selling and producing agriculture with a high satisfaction rating.

As we all know, honeybees are an insect most people avoid with caution. The little creatures also live in a habitat that requires a lot of time and effort to maintain properly. These eco-friendly life forms are very docile, but only when they are not disturbed.

According to media reports provided by Yahoo News, Pence raised public awareness that more than 90 crops containing organic nuts, fruits and vegetables couldn’t properly flourish if they didn’t have honeybees to pollinate the agriculture. Nature credits the decrease in bumble bee provinces to many elements. Several of these reasons include stress brought on by parasites and the bees enduring poor sustenance and neglect.

Perdue acknowledges Karen's contributions

Sonny Perdue, Secretary for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, was cordially in attendance at Pence’s event. He proudly stated that her contributions to the environment serve as a remarkable example of what anyone can do to assist in the prosperity of both honeybees and produce alike.He formally mentioned that his area of expertise is currently attempting to help increase the honeybee populace throughout the U.S.

The Pence estate devotes more than 80 percent of its acreage to farming. Pence commented that the produce developed on her family’s land in Indiana significantly rely upon honeybees being their primary source of pollination. After installing a colony in her home state, she believed that it would be highly beneficial for both humans and the environment if she formed another living arrangement for the honeybees at the White House in Washington, D.C. #Raise Awareness
