Many insects are disappearing from earth – except for flies and cockroaches

A scientific study published in Biological Conservation remarks that some 40% of insect species are decreasing drastically around the world.

Climate change, intensive farming and pesticides are all contributing to the disappearance of insects on earth.

The study’s findings are causing great concern among experts who are aware about the crucial effects that insects have on the ecosystem. Some are a source of food to other creatures, others pollinate some 75% of fruit and crops, while keeping a balance in the ecosystem.

It also emerged that the only insects that will continue to increase instead of decreasing in numbers are flies and cockroaches – which is not good news for some!

Experts predict that 40% of insects will face extinction, a process which is accelerating due to human activities.
