Biodiversity is on the decline. That includes the natural ecosystems that directly and indirectly manage the catering for humanity’s dinner table.
A new report reveals the invertebrates could go extinct within a century, threatening ecosystems and the very survival of mankind.
Higher temperatures mean hungrier insects. And that will mean more crop losses. The question is: Who loses most?
Scientists say that birds essential for controlling pests are at risk amid climate change.
The world's bugs may become less genetically diverse. Researcher found that the mass of flying insects in Germany had declined by as much as 75 percent in the last three decades.
Farm crops and some tree species face an increased threat from destructive insects that are migrating to temperate zones to survive in a warming world.
British butterflies which appear early in the year may soon run out of time to adapt to ever-earlier springs, researchers say.
Apparently bedbugs reproduce by stabbing each other with sword-like penises that inject sperm directly into the bloodstream. Why didn't we think of that?
Bad news, meat lovers and occasional carnivores. Insects could become the sustainable meat of the future if world leaders do nothing and global warming remakes the climate.
Bed bug infestations are way up, thanks in part to stricter health standards for chemicals and the critters' mounting resistance to pesticides. The problem is so out of control, reports the AP, that desperate Americans are dousing their possessions in toxic chemicals, despite warnings from the EPA.
