I hope this is the right area to place this observation:
Has anyone in the warmer areas of the USA noticed any decline in the insect populations?
In your areas?
Here in the southwest area of Arizona (low desert into the wild undeveloped areas ) there are normally
desert ant mounds and low hills every 100 feet or so. The hills are still here but, the populations of ants seem almost nil and the few new hatches I see are of the small and very young and they are few and far between.
Also, almost zero flys, which are usually very common out here. There are birds, but, not as many of those as one may expect.
I would like to hear from others if they notice diminishment in their insect populations as well. It may be just a fluke but it does not hurt to check it out.

I still think the catalyst or kick starter of this trend was December's full Moon. It was one week prior (as we were positioning for this event) that the die-offs started happening.
And not only was it a full Moon on Dec 21, 2010 ---the winter solstice---but a total lunar eclipse too!
And the eclipse was visible throughout most of eastern Asia, Australia, the Pacific Ocean, the Americas and Europe where the die-offs occurred.
