STUDY: World seeing 'catastrophic collapse' of insects
Nearly half of all insect species worldwide are in rapid decline and a third could disappear altogether, according to a study warning of dire consequences for crop pollination and natural food chains.

"Unless we change our way of producing food, insects as a whole will go down the path of extinction in a few decades," concluded the peer-reviewed study, which is set for publication in April.

The recent decline in bugs that fly, crawl, burrow and skitter across still water is part of a gathering "mass extinction," only the sixth in the last half-billion years.

"We are witnessing the largest extinction event on Earth since the late Permian and Cretaceous periods," the authors noted.

...

The study, to be published in the journal Biological Conservation, pulled together data from more than 70 datasets from across the globe, some dating back more than a century.

By a large margin, habitat change—deforestation, urbanisation, conversion to farmland—emerged as the biggest cause of insect decline and extinction threat.

Next was pollution and the widespread use of pesticides in commercial agriculture.

The recent collapse, for example, of many bird species in France was traced to the use insecticides on industrial crops such as wheat, barley, corn and wine grapes.

"There are hardly any insects left—that's the number one problem," said Vincent Bretagnolle, an ecologist at Centre for Biological Studies.

...

Britain has seen a measurable decline across 60 percent of its large insect groups, or taxa, followed by North America (51 percent) and Europe as a whole (44 percent).

10 Human Zika babies were reason enough to create genetically altered mosquitos that would infiltrated and diminish the insect population. Did the scientists not realize that those insects were a food source for thousands of animals likes frog, birds, fish, etc.

Makes sense, more people on the earth, more people squishing bugs, therefore less bugs.
Heed these words,
you who wish to probe the depths of nature:
if you do not find within yourself
that which you seek, neither
will you find it outside.
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures.
Know thyself and you will know
the Universe and the Gods.

Every spring we used to get ants. Last few years none. Also, the snakes are gone...it was the joke all summer every year, me screaming from almost stepping on a snake. Not anymore....really sad. My father used to name the snakes around our house when I was a kid. My grandson and I followed one for a couple summers. We named him Red. I believe this may be true.

Re: STUDY: World seeing 'catastrophic collapse' of insects
Still ton of mosquitos around here.

But the last 3 years i have killed milions of bugs using the dynatrap.

No telling how many others are using them.

Still plenty bugs to go around in this area though

We even had fireflies this year for the first time since i was a kid!

I've been birding for almost 30 years.


The numbers are way down, of the birds that eat bugs. Might be other factors where they over winter in central and s America, but its bad. Spring warblers less every year.

I've noticed. I plant a garden every year and I didn't have many pest problems the last couple of years. Hardly see grasshoppers anymore and last year the flies were absent most of the summer. Not complaining about that, I hate the damn flies. Ladybugs are still around though, wintering in my walls it seems.

Anyway, if the insects go, the birds will be next. Or maybe they will survive off my cat food. I have a steady stream of little birds taking the cat food away daily, piece by piece. gaah

Yes, when you have the seeds to plant even if they grow without pollinators they bare no harvest.

humans are wiping out other forms of life due to their inability to control their exponential birth rate.

human expansion is constantly compressing the environment thus forcing species to survive with less and less.
