Are you trying to cheer me up?😂😞 I'll read it shortly but my guess is neonicitinoids in pesticides and destruction of habitat again?

'The locusts ate not only the grass and valuable crops, but also leather, wood, sheep's wool, and—in extreme cases—even clothes off peoples' backs.'...blimey😳

Gunpowder, vacuum cleaners and bounties

You can see why they weren't popular!
Nonetheless, to go from such massive populations to zero is pretty sobering

Around me the big (semi-wild) gardens are being sold for infill building and now the Bath side of town is gobbling up green belt for high priced houses.
I am seeing fewer bird species and I have not had a Fox in the garden for years, no more Grass snakes or Slow worms but I do get Frogs, Toads and Newts still.
I could do with something that eats Rats and Mice. Mankind is anything but!!
