BUG TALK

As far as I can remember
They were always on time,
Buzzing all across the streets,
Making the arrival of winters sublime.

I recall spending hours, observing them-
Leafhoppers and bugs all around
Flying and sitting in their colourful skin,
In the littlest hope of light they found.

They came to collect food,
To survive throughout the winter.
Long has been this night,
Talking to you in whisper.

The winters seem to have grown
Old and feeble,
They have short lives-
Modifying the adaptations of even bugs and beetles.


Although we know how how the change in weather conditions have increased the amount of diseases through insects, bugs and flu ; we also need to understand how it has affected the ecosystems. Bugs are not all bad and our lives could have had been vastly different without them.

Insects pollinate many of our fruits, flowers, and vegetables. We would not have much of the produce that we enjoy and rely on without the pollinating services of insects, not to mention honey, beeswax, silk, and other useful products that insects provide.

Insects feed on a seemingly endless array of foods. Many insects are omnivorous, meaning that they can eat a variety of foods including plants, fungi, dead animals, decaying organic matter, and nearly anything they encounter in their environment. We can find insects in almost every conceivable habitat. Their size, shape, color, biology, and life history are so diverse that it makes our world much more interesting.

Unfortunately, most people are more aware of the few insects that cause problems than the many beneficial ones. Uninformed people think that all insects are bad and all are in need of control. We must always keep in mind that the good done by the many beneficial insects far outweighs any bad caused by a few pest species.

So what has global warming resulted to, is not only the increment in those few bad insects which thrive better in heat and carry communicable diseases. But also has resulted to the extinction of many of those bugs which we need for better harvesting of life and nature.
If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.

Save the Environment and you will save the Life and Future.
