Re: 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).

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
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77313496


Irony.

Along with mice, birds are the original cat food.

To solve this bug problem and bird issue, I suggest stop feeding your cats and let them feed themselves. It's a win-win-win!

First, we save the doomed bugs, second, you take care of those troublesome birds, and last, you get extra cash for.........dog food!? scratching

Here on the Oregon coast, it's crickets that have been utterly decimated.

They used to be everywhere in abundance. When the weather starts getting chilly in the fall, you would always start to find them in the house, and they sought relief from the coming winter.

But over the last 3 years, they have gone from sparse to practically GONE. This winter I found ONE. During the previous (normal) years, I would find 2 or 3 a DAY in the house.

And during the summer, when I mow my lawn, I used to see HUNDREDS jumping around when I would mow next to my railroad tie terraces, but over the last few years? NADA.

I don't think it has anything to do with population. Humans and insects have been coexisting forever. There's still plenty of space on this planet for bugs to thrive.

I think it's got everything to do with GMO crops.

Is the problem the newer heavy-duty pesticides? I'm skeptical. Insects used to be able to adapt to survive whatever pesticides we threw at them, like bacteria growing resistant to antibiotics.

This leaves me wondering if the problem may be the GMO crops themselves. Are genetically modified plants killing the insects that eat them? Are the genetics of GMO crops finding their way into wild plants?
