Disappearing insects

Following my comments about the reduced number of moths we have been getting particularly over the last two years, I was amazed to see two articles that would suggest that this is far from a local problem and would appear to be not related to local climate variations.

The first was in the Guardian in 2017:-


The second on the ABC news (Australia) on the internet:-

If this is a world wide problem it will be a major disaster. We rely very heavily on insects in all areas of our ecology.
