Where are all the insects? I used to avoid sitting outside for my morning coffee because of wasps and flies. I haven't seen a wasps in months, no bumble bees either, just carpenter bees that are hollowing out one of our house beams from the underside. The dish with the grape jelly and sugar water, still left standing for straggling orioles and other insects. No bees. No robins either that used to run on our lawn, stopping suddenly to listen for worms. I think local beekeepers have given up because of the colony collapse syndrome. But correct me if I am wrong. There is something pernicious in the environment that causes these disappearances.
