First dead birds, then dead fish ... now crickets


www.msnbc.msn.com

A virus has killed millions of crickets raised to feed pet reptiles and those kept in zoos.

The cricket paralysis virus has disrupted supplies to pet shops across North America as a handful of operators have seen millions of their insects killed.

Oh noes! The crickets are dying... meaning the birds and many animals will lack food. Also some tribes in South America.



The virus had swept through European cricket farms in 2002. It was first noticed in 2009 in the U.S. and Canada.

The virus marks the latest in a recent series of mass animal deaths.

Poor crickets... surely this kind of virus killing millions happens regularly.... or does it happen more often now because of those ``crickets farms`` and the various stuff they make the crickets eat? GMO food anyone?

Sure ain't good for the world ecosystem.

To me, this isn't the same as the birds. We know what caused this.

Completely un-related incident
, The only connection is that Humans are in some way responsible in all cases

Something tells me the virus was implanted by a fringe conservative motivated by Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck's comments. This was a politically motivated mass murder. We need new virus laws so this things never happens again!

But honestly, I do really expect more weird things to happen like this, violence, die-offs, in a more turbulent and increasing way. This all I believe is a result of the shift in consciousness that some of us are aware of and those people who are bad will be affected by it as the world spins faster.

What is going on among the animals and insects?. A virus with some but not with other mass deaths. I have been leaning toward the shifting pole in other instances. The article also mentioned turkey vultures in the Florida Keys, I had not heard about that. There is a Google map of the mass deaths but hasn't been updated for 6 days, I am wondering why.

Totally. MSNBC is just reaching here. But I had to copy the headline...

But of course, MSNBC probably thinks that all those birds and fishes dying is also ``normal`` or we ``know what killed them``... so for them, it's all the same.

You can tell temperature off cricket chirps. They are natural temp tellers. So maybe they are experiencing something to do with temp change?

This is an example of extreme shoddy reporting...

The dead fish happened BEFORE the dead birds...

Geesh!

I see a business opportunity for anyone who doesn't mind having millions of crickets in your house.

Hell, I don't know, any one here ever raised crickets?

And if you want to make them part of your regular diet, I sure don't see a problem with that. I've heard if you cover them with chocolate, it's like heaven. I've personally never had cricket, but have had meal worm. In our town, we have an annual event at the purdue university called the "bug bowl". There you can eat all the crickets you want.

Good riddance to those annoying loud buggers! Every year in the spring and summer months crickets go nuts around these parts. To the point they cover sidewalks, walls, and roadways. We need more frogs down here stat!
