I just watched a report on BBC World News, the bee problem is world wide. They are having the same problem in England. I live in South Georgia and I have noticed a drastic change in animals and varmints in our area. Last year I didn't see a single bee in our flower garden. I know longer see frogs and toads out at night. I no longer see tadpoles in streams or ponds. I don't see as many snakes. I don't catch as many fish, and I do know how to catch fish, they just are not in the rivers here any longer. There are not as many birds as they were ten years ago. Coons and possoms are fewer as well. There is something wrong in our environment. I believe it is in the water.
Its insects that are the problem... so many things eat them, frogs toads fish birds , small mammals, they are fundamental to the food chains. We are destroying all the insects, so we are starving the frogs, toad, birds and small mammals.
Ask a motorcyclist. A bikers visor in spring samples a cross section of flying insects.
Agriculture is going to kill insects, that isnt going to change, but we need to change the amount they kill.
