They are dying off...just like crickets and especially Frogs and Snakes. I too have noticed that where I could at one time look across vast fields as
see thousands of Flashes of Lightning Bugs...especially in HOT JULY...there are almost none now to be seen.
In the Spring...during a rain...I could at one time see...all sorts of Frogs and Toads crossing the road as I drove at night...hopping across the road
as far as I could drive...now...nothing.
When I was young and would cut lawns...it was almost impossible not to accidentally Kill a Snake that would be in the grass. There would be all sorts
of snakes and Turtles and Salamanders of all kinds...but Acid Rain is killing their Eggs as well as Ponds and Lakes becoming so Acidic that Fish Eggs
as being destroyed and I have not seen a Polly Wog in a very long time.
The one animal that seems to be making a strong recovery is Birds of Prey and I see Bald Eagles, Various types of Hawks, Various Owls, Falcons and a
Huge number of Turkey Vultures as well as Turkeys. I live in Mass. as the Deer population is out of control as there are not enough Hunters. We also
have the return...in SPADES of Black Bear, Wild Turkey, Rabbits, Raccoon, Moose and although the Mass. Dept. of Wildlife will not admit
this....MOUNTAIN LIONS as not only have I seen their tracks and kills but I and many others have seen the Lions. Two Lions were reported in nearby
Conn. and one was killed by a CAR.
