  • Roughly 40% of the world's insect species are in decline, a new study said.
  • The die-offs are happening primarily because insects are losing their habitats to farming and urbanization. The use of pesticides and fertilizers is also to blame, as is climate change.
  • The study's authors said the repercussions of this loss of Earth's insects could be catastrophic.
  • The rapid shrinking of insect populations is also a sign that the planet is in the midst of a sixth mass extinction.
