Ever hear of the Windshield Effect? When I was growing up, anytime we went somewhere in the car during the warm months, we had to clean the windshield. Have you noticed how little you have to do that anymore? And do you miss summer evenings dotted with fireflies as much as I do? How about watching a male monarch butterfly dancing to attract his lady?
Think about the insects you like to watch when you are in the garden. Can you list them all? I can’t name a lot of the ones I see, but looking them up in a field guide (or on my phone) gives me a reason to take a few minutes of rest. I would miss these insects — and many more — if they were gone.
