Abstract

Insects are among the most fascinating creatures of planet Earth. According to facts, insects comprise more than half of all living things on planet Earth. While some of them are considered pests, many are beneficial and essential for human existence as they contribute massively to the maintenance of food web and biodiversity. Dragonflies help to regulate and monitor the climatic conditions while butterflies are the real source of pollination. However, due to unfamiliarity and lack of knowledge about them, Earth is continually facing the decline due to human actions. In this article, we are exploring some lightening facts of insect’s contributions to livability of existence and their decline. Their decline is not making the earth unlivable yet can challenge the survivability of ecosystem and humans due to their harmful consequence.
