Our planet is warming very quickly and human activities contribute significantly to this change. Climate change will have a great and significant impact on the insects’ growth, whether they are beneficial or harmful. Insects which play a prominent role in our agricultural environments (pollinators, devastating, biological control agents) will inevitably have effects on the agricultural productivity and food security.
