Cars and Convenience Stores

I know that people need their car especially in the countryside. But do you know how many insects your car kills until you junk it?

Amazingly, ten million! I couldn’t believe it.

In the countryside, having a convenience store is big news. It especially helps the elderly and the physically disabled. And do you know that a convenience store in the countryside is big news for insects?

After four or five years of having a new convenience store in the countryside, it becomes a gathering spot for bugs because they are attracted to the bright lights. They search for female bugs but they forget that and gather under the strong lights. Male bugs lose mating opportunities and they don’t create the next generation.

Having cars and convenience stores destroy nature which humans need. We are in one system much more than we realize.
