In addition to fewer bees and other insects, I have also noticed a lack of slugs in my yard over the past few years, probably due to the hot weather. My yard used to be slug city. It is getting scary.

Nelson,

Thanks for bringing this up. This should be a huge concern for all of us. I too am noticing it.

Dear birders and hawk watchers- why is it that Crazy Dave and I are the only one to observe ( and publish) the decline of raptors and insects. For well over a year, I have noticed a paucity of raptors in the sky. Now there is a paucity of bees and dragon flies. Folks- I am in the sky every day. Raptors cannot hide in the sky. Good day.
