Nightlife wonders

by Kevin T McEneaney

Some insects are more active during night.

There is as much pollination at night

as compared to during daylight hours.


Nocturnal moths comprise the greatest flights.

Beetles, crickets, thrips, mating fireflies,

and cicadas operate during night.

Our hearing system resembles crickets’!


Light pollution is another problem.

Nighttime vanity lighting damages

all insects, nearly all migrating birds.


Some dudes employ night-time electronic

zappers to kill off mosquitoes and flies.

For every eight mosquitos killed at night,

at least ten thousand insects must perish.
