Where have all the insects gone? Can you remember the days that had your car windscreen covered in bugs,it’s not so long ago. I was coming from Whitby the other evening and there in the road late at night were a few moths, not many but a few .It was then the reality hit home I could not remember seeing clouds of bugs in any recent year . I am no bug professor but I know when my flies  are down.

I have heard a few explanations for this usually that cars are more aerodynamic so the bugs don’t stick but trucks and bussed have the aerodynamics of a pile of bricks. So where have they gone ? it’s not just the humble bee that pollinate our crops and flowers, we also need the billions of insects we once had. I dont know if its the agricultural sprays we use, mono crops, the removal of hedges, pollution or the loss of our wild flower meadows that has caused this to happen but we need to stop this decline as a matter of National importance and security because if our crops,flowers and trees are not pollinated we as a nation are stuffed.  Can you imagine the kind of county we would have   If we cannot feed ourselves ,the birds gone, few trees or flowers,  fish stocks decimated .I can and the thought terrifies me
