Does anyone else notice that there are literally almost no insects anymore or am I going crazy?

I noticed this half a year ago in summer, but I think it's time to talk about it with someone. At least here in the alps in Austria, a landscape that is together with Switzerland usually described as paradise, everything is...dead. Yes, the plants are alive of course, but all insects (I've never really seen real animals anyway to be honest, they hide deep in the forest) are gone, except fucking ticks. Yeah, great. Everything else is like wiped away here in my area, I'm 18 and even 10 years ago my garden was completely filled with all kinds of things. It's not like I WANT more ants, ticks or spiders, no, I don't like them - but they are important for natural balance, and BEES are also gone.

And if there's one thing child TV has taught me in various shows it's that bees are important. And they are.

Edit: Now that I think about it I notice: even the birds are way less than there used to be. Our garden would be full of them, now I see maybe 3 or 4 per day altough I live near a big forest and there are trees in my garden.

Does anyone else experience this???

If ALL insects go extinct, does humanity have any chance of survival?

I know that if enough insects disappear, the next in line of extinction would be their predators, then theirs, and then humans. I also know that there's meat being grown in labs without the use of real animals, ocean water is slowly being treated and made drinkable, and other scientific advancements that make me, a simple guy with no scientific background whatsoever, think that there's a chance for humanity to survive without insects and animals at all. Maybe not 7 billion of us, maybe not with the best comfort in life, but just barely surviving as a species. Is it possible? Or are we 100% doomed to extinction?

A scorpion can have as many as 100 babies in a single brood. They are not hatched from eggs like insects. Baby scorpions (scorplings) have very soft exoskeletons. They crawl up onto their mother's back and ride there for 10 to 20 days until their exoskeleton get strong enough.
