Where Have all the Ants Gone?

Mission Control we have a problem.

This is planet earth North American continent, United States of America, State of New York, Yates county.  I have been to the Keuka Lake State park several times this summer and I have noticed a lack of the insect population.  No grasshoppers and no ants have been spotted.  I recall plenty of ants running across the beach as a child at our cottage.  I did not see any of the miniature variety in my kitchen this spring.

I recall a book, Silent Spring by Rachel Carson which documented a similar problem with birds.  I have a few ants in my home, thank goodness, they have not been all exterminated.

Ants are fast moving black creatures who are helper bees with the radio active world we live in.  What is causing their demise?  Are they hiding under ground?  Is it the lack of rain and snow this past year?  What can we do to help these industrious creatures?

I think that a strong possibility causing the problem is the vibrations from cellular and smart phones.

We all recall the food chain from high school biology.  We are all integrated, all species.  If anyone has any suggestions let me know.  If you are seeing plenty of ants, let me know as well, reassure me.
