I grew up surrounded by insects, from the meadow brown butterflies that fluttered around my garden, to the daddy long legs that skittered across my kitchen ceiling as the weather got colder. Insects have always been there, whether a wonder or a hinderance, they were there regardless. Now it seems that this may change.
There are over 27,000 species (Buglife) of insect in the UK alone, but this number is declining at an alarming rate. Insects are dying out up to eight times faster than larger animals and now 41% of insect species face extinction. This is extremely alarming, and what I find more alarming is the fact that not much has been done about it.
