Arthro-Pod EP 79: What Goes Up Must Come Down- Insect Populations

As Extension professionals, the Arthro-Pod gang often gets asked questions about where a certain insect has disappeared to. It's a tough question to answer because there are so many factors that can impact insect populations. Today we're going to try and unpack some of those factors and talk about why you might be noticing fewer cicadas or why there was suddenly an explosion of butterflies in your area. Tune in!
