Could a 'Bug Boom' Be on the Way After Mild Winter?
There are new fears about a bug boom happening this summer after our very mild winter. Right now, the world’s population is about seven billion people, and there’s an estimated 10 quintillion insects out there, and that works out to about 1.43 billion insects per person. We may be even more outnumbered this summer!
Laura Ingle, reporting from Central Park in New York City, said mosquitoes, ants, water bugs, ticks and bees are all coming out with a vengeance this summer in the Northeast, according to urban entomologists.
Mike Deutsch, one such entomologist, told Ingle, “We are bracing for a major bug war, if you will. It all depends on how the summer is. If the summer is really hot and there’s a lot of moisture, like there has been the last month or so, the population of insects is going to be out of control.”
