Bug splat decline

Entomologists across Europe have become increasingly concerned about a declining number of bug splats on windscreens.

The fall in numbers of bugs in Britain has now reached such a troubling extent that even motorists are noticing that their windscreens are clear of squashed flies, gnats, moths and wasps.

The lack of bug splattered cars is not just confined to the northern hemisphere.
