Very few insects survive the agrochems that are being sprayed. We dont even get the layer of squished bugs on the windscreen anymore.

Yep, it's bad this year. First inkling I got was seeing one the size of a small helicopter on my mothers draining board. Since then Mr Suspiria has been bitten to death, they don't like the taste of me for some reason. Still if we have anymore of this wet/hot rubbish I'm sorely tempted to install Mossie nets in the bedrooms. I keep going out in the garden to make sure I've got no stagnant still rainwater, but you can't guarantee if other folks aren't helping them breed en mass can you?.

So back the OP, yes worst ever this year (well in the Blantyre area around the River Calder)
