“A new type of blow fly spotted in Indiana points to shifting species populations due to climate change.”

"There is definitely a northward movement of species -- not just insects, but all species -- as they try to find temperatures where they are more comfortable."

Bottom Line

Trees, birds, bees, beetles, and even the flies are all migrating North as fast as they can, before it's too late.
