From study:

We aimed at compiling all long-term insect surveys conducted over the past 40 years that are available through global peer-reviewed literature databases. To that effect we performed a search on the online Web of Science database using the keywords [insect] AND [declin] AND [survey], which resulted in a total of 653 publications.

IMMEDIATELY file-drawer effect. They didn't even search for studies where insect population estimates weren't in decline, therefore ensuring their results by design. This is a trash study.

I'm skeptical of anything that comes out of a university nowadays. Their devotion to activism taints everything they do.

There are more insects in one square mile than people on Earth. Ants have more biomass than all the humans that have ever lived, so I'm going to go with a solid "no" on this one.

Anything that takes a critical look at the overuse and toxicity of pesticides is welcome in my book. I wish they looked more deeply into how awful it is for people as well as nature.
