Haven't seen a cockroach around my apartment in forever
There haven't been many insects in general around my area. I'm afraid of insect population collapse and what that means for the ecosystem. Insects are a vital part of the food web and they play important roles as pollinators.
I read an article about a German study that found insect population has decreased a lot since the 70s. They collected insects from traps each year and counted them. I told my parents about this and then my dad confirmed the German study's findings by saying that back in the 80s his windshield would get coated with dead insects during highway drives. Today it's rare to have an insect go splat. I'm scared about what's going to happen next /ota/.
