Alert “06880” reader Dick Lowenstein wonders:
Where have all the insects gone? Am I alone in thinking that there are few bugs flying around?
This year and last, the stinging insects seem to have disappeared — fewer hornets, wasps, yellow jackets and bees. Also fewer mosquitoes (maybe because of less rain).
Dick says a friend noticed fewer butterflies too.
Did you notice the lack of bugs and stinging insects? Or was this summer’s weather just so fantastic, we didn’t care?
