 First dead birds, then dead fish ... now crickets - U.S. news - Environment - msnbc.com

PORT ALLEN, La. — A virus has k!lled millions of crickets raised to feed pet reptiles and those kept in zoos.

The cricket paralysis virus has disrupted supplies to pet shops across North America as a handful of operators have seen millions of their insects k!lled.
Some operations have gone bankrupt and others have closed indefinitely until they can rid their facilities of the virus.

Cricket farms started in the 1940s as a source of fish bait, but the bulk of sales now are to pet supply companies, reptile owners and zoos, although people also eat some.

Most U.S. farms are in the South, but suppliers from Pennsylvania to California also raise crickets.

The virus had swept through European cricket farms in 2002. It was first noticed in 2009 in the U.S. and Canada.

The virus marks the latest in a recent series of mass animal deaths.


Blackbirds fell out of the sky on New Year's Eve in Arkansas. In the days that followed, 2 million fish died in the Chesapeake Bay, 150 tons of red tilapia in Vietnam, 40,000 crabs in Britain and other places across the world.

However, biologists say these mass die-offs happen all the time and usually are unrelated.

Federal records show they happen on average every other day somewhere in North America.

In the past eight months, the U.S. Geological Survey's National Wildlife Health Center has logged 95 mass wildlife die-offs in North America and that's probably a dramatic undercount, officials say.

The list includes:

* 900 some turkey vultures that seemed to drown and starve in the Florida Keys.
* 4,300 ducks k!lled by parasites in Minnesota.
* 1,500 salamanders done in by a virus in Idaho.
* 2,000 bats that died of rabies in Texas.
* And the still mysterious death of 2,750 sea birds in California.

Officials blamed the deaths of 5,000 red-winged blackbirds in Beebe, Ark., on New Year's Eve fireworks.

Experts say the loud cracks and booms likely sent the birds into such a tizzy that they crashed into homes, cars and each other before plummeting to their deaths.

I know, I know, I'm a gullible sheep to believe recorded events and science over internet blogs and YouTube videos. It really is the end of times.

Will see. It probably is true anyways. Not until we start seeing mass deaths on a great scale.

I guess it just seems odd to most because they don't hear about this or see this a lot.
Basically, it might be just trending on the Internet

You don't see it odd that all these animals of all types are dying in large numbers?, this story isn't just about birds man, this happening over and over to different species is the key issue here.

we know birds die all the time for other reasons BUT NOT in this manner, this is an issue nobody understands so they are trying to figure out, this isn't no s**t just trending on the internet this is happening all over the world also not just the USA.

This is far from the first time large animal deaths have been recorded, as was pointed out the article. Animals die in large groups from disease, cold snaps, storms, etc, and right now we're experiencing a harsh winter.

The only possible link shown between any two or more of these recent events has been cold weather.
