A scientific examination of insect numbers suggests that 40% of species are undergoing “dramatic rates of decline” around the world.
The study says that bees, ants, and beetles are disappearing eight times faster than mammals, birds, reptiles, and other insects.
While those insects are in decline, researchers say that some species, such as houseflies and cockroaches, are likely to boom.
The study finds that the general insect decline is being caused by severe agriculture, pesticides, and climate change.
