What happens to flowers and birds when we massacre mosquitoes with modern traps?
It’s only recently that people have thought that eradicating mosquitoes might be a bad thing, a mosquito researcher says.
Last year so many rodents roamed Norwegian forests that residences were overrun, from mountain cabin attics to house basements. This summer in southern Norway, rodent numbers have plummeted to roughly one-hundredth of what they were just a year ago. Yet no one really knows what’s powering these enormous population swings.
