Publisher's Summary

From ants scurrying under leaf litter to bees able to fly higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, insects are everywhere. Three out of every four of our planet’s known animal species are insects. 

In The Insect Crisis, acclaimed journalist Oliver Milman dives into the torrent of recent evidence that suggests this kaleidoscopic group of creatures is suffering the greatest existential crisis in its remarkable 400-million-year history. What is causing the collapse of the insect world?  

Why does this alarming decline pose such a threat to us? 

And what can be done to stem the loss of the miniature empires that hold aloft life as we know it?

Strangely written

The author continually quotes other people as if he has no confidence to write anything himself? The narrator then gives all the quotes strange accents which doesn’t make for the best listen.
I felt the subject was very interesting but just didn’t like the style of the book.

Read to the end for heartening.

Interestingly grim until the practical work reported in last chapter's those are supported by evidence and mightily encouraging.
