Letter: Insects go to town

The Independent Online
Sir: In response to Ted Howl's letter (18 July), we suggest the dearth of insects is indeed a regional quirk. We live in an urban area and have never before seen so many flying creatures; scores of butterflies, countless moths, flying ants, bees and wasps and several large and colourful dragonflies. As a result, our uncultivated garden is visited daily by their natural predators; many birds, bats and frogs. Maybe this abundance of life owes something to our relaxed attitude towards gardening]

Yours faithfully,
