What Bugs Me
A study published last fall documented a 76 percent decline in the total seasonal biomass of flying insects netted at 63 locations in Germany over the last three decades. Losses in midsummer, when these insects are most numerous, exceeded 80 percent.
Now I just read the article in full. Looks like pesticides are the likely culprit, and coupled with a drought of naturalist students, the world could be headed for disaster from this alarming decline.

Edited by Phat, : just read article
