Splatometer tests.

Post by chaggle »

Some studies are confirming what has been suspected for some time - that insect numbers are declining alarmingly.

Surprisingly the use of insecticides, although mentioned, is not said to be a major cause of this...
Matt Shardlow, the chief executive of the charity Buglife, said: “These new studies reinforce our understanding of the dangerously rapid disappearance of insect life in both the air and water. It is becoming clear that the four horsemen of the insect apocalypse are climate change, habitat destruction, habitat fragmentation and pollution. It is essential we create more joined up space for insects that is safe from pesticides, climate change and other harm.”
