    BBC news has covered an insect world becoming extinct within 100 yrs or so and what effect that would have on the world's food resources, what do others think.

    I know honey bees have been taking a hit lately, I like them and like honey too, so I help them out planting flowers :bee for them in back yard. Funny thing, on days I need to do a little work, pruning and such, the bees just continue doing their bee work and do not get mad at me. But wasps/hornets I do not tolerate, we are at a constant state of war with them and I see no truce in the future . They like to build nests in our eves on front of house by front door and they are aggressive, 2 favorite weapons are a 2 gallon pump sprayer with 1.5 cups of liquid dish soap the rest is water, and a can of foaming wasp/hornet spray that shoots 30', the dish soap water is for protection when they get close hit them with the spray and they drop right out of the air, the foaming spray kills the nest and everything in it and then you can remove the nest.

    I wish mosquitoes would disappear, they seem to be increasing in our area

    I think the rapture is so close we needn't worry

    I put absolutely no stock in man-made catastrophizing. God's Word doesn't prophecy such a thing and the 1,000 year Millennial Reign will very most likely be underway in 100 years and I'll still be napping after feasting at the Marriage Supper Of The Lamb.

    I think it's about as likely as the world coming to an end within 12 years because of global warming... I mean climate change. Yeah, that's it.

    About a century too late in my opinion. Snakes next.

    .......it could be that all the insects die due to catastrophic habitat disruption and/or damage as a result of Occasional Cortex's plan to tear down and rebuild every building in America. PETA is not going to be ok with that!

    Ack! That's too soon... I wouldn't be able to use up my humongous stock of mosquito repellant if they disappeared in a mere 100 years or so... plus Alaska would then have to select a new "state bird". ;)

    There are many parts of the world where insect populations are not catalogued, it sounds far fetched to me. It certainly would have damaging effects. If the insects ever go, many species of birds, reptiles and fish will go soon after.

    Well isn't that an odd thing? From time to time on the news of all things, they say "we" will be eating insects instead of beef/chicken etc, due to their being so many of them, and now some scientists have come up with flour made with cockroaches.

    It's another scare tactic to get people to give up more of their freedoms. Nothing more.
