Insect numbers are declining at an extraordinary rate and this is not a result of all the pests Go Green pest control deals with daily. Most insects are undeniably vital for the existence of many plants and animal species. Insects are vital to our planet’s ecological well-being, which many animals and plants relying on. As the insect numbers continue to fall, the effects are likely to be distressing. Between 30 and 50 per cent of insect species are currently endangered with extinction and insect biomass is dropping by three per cent yearly. The insects role is essential to the planet’s ecological health, with fewer insects the world might see potential extinction. The world’s population of beetles, bees and butterflies has become relatively ominous, as it is now estimated that in a half a century most of the world’s insects will be gone. And the culprit is - agriculture, urbanization, deforestation and climate change. Not all insects are struggling as more adaptable species (the ones commonly classified as pests) still will thrive.
