I live in the northern plains, Jamestown, North Dakota. Up to a year ago I was living 60 miles south of Jamestown in Ellendale, North Dakota.
About 4 or 5 years ago, probably 4 years, I noticed a definite decline in the mosquito population. I ride a bicycle and in summer like to ride at night to avoid the heat. In June I am picking cat tails. They do spray for mosquitoes in Ellendale, but not outside of the city limits, and I could not imagine what was disrupting the life cycle of the mosquito. Everyone I mentioned this to thought I was crazy to be concerned about fewer mosquitoes.
About two years ago I noticed a decline in all insects in Ellendale, and this summer in Jamestown the decline is very noticeable.
Tonight I found an article on your site dated March 19, 2008, by Paul Doyon. Paul blames the decline in insect populations to the use of microwaves. After thinking about this for a while I remembered that 4 or 5 years ago there was an explosion of microwave towers in the area from Ellendale to Aberdeen, South Dakota. Aberdeen is the nearest town to Ellendale and where I did all my shopping. The distance is 40 miles.
This is not good science, but it is an indication to me that Paul is right and widespread microwave use is the villain. It’s also further proof that there is no hope for the planet.
