Business Insider reports a recent loss of insects may be more of a threat than may be believed.

Studies suggest this could trigger a "catastrophic collapse of Earth's ecosystems."

The research looked at 73 historical reports on insect declines around the world...

This means the Earth may not have any insects at all by 2119, which could significantly affect ecosystems worldwide.
