Where have all the insects gone?
New Zealand scientists are very concerned about the declining population of non-pest insects. It could be a signal of the earth's disaster. While pests such as annoying mosquitoes and cockroaches remain unchanged, insects such as New Zealand native honey bees, moths, butterflies and ladybugs are remarkably decreasing every year. However, this phenomenon is not limited to New Zealand, but also globally.
The reason scientists worry is that if an insect disappears, it will bring down all ecosystems. Especially flying insects. For example, without bees, the grains and fruits that humans eat cannot bear fruit. According to scientists, the role of these insects in 80% of the food we actually eat is very important. So Harvard's famous ecologist, E.O. Wilson said, "Small insects make the world go around." He laments that Washington was once full of flying butterflies, and now all flying insects are gone.
There are many reasons for the loss of natural habitats due to the development of civilization, the use of pesticides, single crop agriculture, and climate change due to warming. But eventually the insects disappear because of environmental pollution. Already, scientists from several countries, including New Zealand, the United States and Germany, have collaborated on the speed and reason why insects disappear. They say they are doing research at different angles to increase the number of missing insects.
I can't think of environmental issues anymore like other people's problems.
