End Of Days: Dead Birds, Dead Fish, Dead…Crickets????

- By Bossip Staff

Welp, looks like the apocalypse is upon us. It’s been fun you guys. See ya next lifetime…

A virus has killed 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 killed.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.

Somebody has to come up with a reasonable explanation for all these mass deaths. Random viruses and “lightning” just isn’t good enough for us.

What do you think is going on with the world and these mass animal/insect deaths?

      Perfect love casts out all fear. Be right with your neighbor loving whoever as yourself,and be not far from the kingdom of God.Have that,and save the soul. That is what matters.

    The reason why these insects, fish, and birds are dying is b/c the environment they live in is infected. Humans continue to pollute our air, water, and soil, so this is the result.

      that sounds too logical, is there any way we can blame white people, jews, muslims, immigrants, the poor or everyones favorite secret society the freemasons…?

    • brotherman

      No, it’s Jay-Z, Kanye, Rhianna and Nicki. The illumanati is behind this. Devil worshippers are killing the environment. *sarcasm*

  • Chase The Jock

    No particularly certain whats going on and the bible does mention that the initial stages of God’s return will be subtle.. However; I still think that God has faith in us (humans)as a race of beings who are capable of more good than bad… So, I’m not worried…

    I dont want to call it end of days yet because I am not prepared. 😦


    Stop with this “End Of days” Bull! Every period of time has seen disasters,and so called phenomenons and yet the world is still here. Just because something occurs that we have never seen before ,does not mean that somewhere in time it has not happened before. I put no faith in anything foretold by MAN!.The biggest problem i have with religion is that it is MAN based and not God Based! The very tenants of ALL religions lack anything tangible! People constantly throwing their beliefs around instead of actually practing them. Any faith based writing lacks logic or any consistency and can be torn apart by any THIN KING person,so give us intelligent folks a break, and spare of the “End of Days” Boogie Man Dogma,every time something “New”occurs.

  • Everyone don't look through the same eyes...

    @Purple Love…I second that motion!!!LOL. Live like it’s ur last 🙂

  • HOT G.R.I.T.S

    Get ready we might see the end in our life time. But believe God will come back because its written…n all religions….if u think he wont u lying to urslf. We humans are the worst plague to hit this earth. We’ve destroyed the land n now we cloning animals just because we don’t have enough animals to feed us. We indulge in sin n don’t repent. We kill still …etc.

    • Monica

      SO if there is a God why would he know all of this would happen and that we humans would be so bad, yet still set this in motion?

  • Tan

    My question is what’s next? US. What is it gonna take for us to wake up and turn our lives around. This world is coming to a end. It’s just sad how fast.

    • ProMac

      What’s next you ask? Why the aliens/fallen angels of course.

      Bush said it himself, we are going to need some distant enemy threat to bring the world together. Thier arrival is going to be the last rabbit pulled out of the hat.

  • stacy

    if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    Revelations 8
    Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth

    Matthew 24:8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.

  • Amazin Atheist

    This happens all the time, this is the first time it is really publicized! And even if it were the “end of days”, it shouldn’t even matter because we are all going to die anyway! That is all a part of living! your god taking all of it’s frustrations out on birds, fish, insects? GTFOH, that is one petty imaginary being!

      Thats so true! They claim that its all nonsense but yet they go out of their way to try and disprove it and they are mad at everybody else that believes it.

      Why are they so upset/mad about something THEY say is a fairytale? LOL

    • LoveLiveLife

      There always so mad because EVERYTIME something you don’t understand happens people come with these “end of days” “it’s time to wake up” quotes and it makes people want to stop coming to the site and reading the comments.HISTORY has shown that animals have always fallin from the sky this is nothing new.”Christians” come on this site quoting irrelevant Bible quotes toward things that have nothing to do with the post is what makes them mad.The real question is why are most “so called” Christians so paranoid and mean.I go to church almost every sunday and I feel no need to come on a BLOG site and try to preach religon/thats the reason why people that are not christian dont like us…Everything that happens you feel like god is coming for us,and as a Christian I find it irritating myslef

    • JustAshley


      That explanation doesn’t even make sense. If you already know its part of the ” Christian belief” then why be mad WHEN WE BELIEVE IT? LMAO
      I don’t get mad when someone says they don’t believe in God. *shrug*
      I suspect athiest are mad because they are afraid their might be some truth to what the “religious” claim.

    • I can't STAN!

      @ ashley
      That’s exactly what it is…the “truth” as they know it ain’t addin up, and it bugs the shyt out of’em. You ever listen to Atheists…they so narcissistic…got a answer for every damn thing and think they know it all. Think they wiser than God, but findin out that they ain’t. That’s why they so mad.

    • Mystyri

      @ i can’t STAN!


  • confidently_ugly

    I can never understand why some act as if man or this planet cant be destroyed .We may not witness it but it will happen. “All conditioned things are impermanent.”

  • artdude01

    People need to get a grip, it doesn’t matter if every human dies, the Earth will still be here. The apocalypse has already happened once to dinosaurs. In the grand scheme of things the kind, polluters, racist, and murderous people that inhabit this Earth is small potatoes. The Earth may need a reboot. It was nice knowing everyone.

  • Amazin Atheist

    So you believe everything the bible “tells” you! Or do you skip over the majority of it like everybody else does?

  • Amazin Atheist

    Not mad just trying to figure out why everyone believes in nonsense!

    • I can't STAN!

      What the fuuck you tryna figure it out for? You still searchin for the truth? Cause you know yo a$$ ain’t get here by yo self. You supposedly don’t believe in God then that’s on you, but don’t come on here talkin down on folks that do, muhfugga.

    • I can't STAN!

      whateva you say Lucifer’s minion lol

    • ManchesterUKer

      Lots of people are stupid and ignorant

  • live, laugh and love

    we are definitely in the last days. The next world war would be for food and water because there would be a shortage and so the nwo would come into effect and countries will have to join in order to have access to basic amenities. America the great will fall from a great earthquake and the antichrist will emerge. He will not be a scary devil looking person but be handsome and of great charisma and woo all countries and citizens to accept the nwo, the bible says that he would be from the middle east. And there would be a great war between god’s people(those who have not accepted the new world order) and those who have accepted. Read your bibles and get your mind right folks

  • G.M.

    u mean to tell me, any living thing actually dies…NO WAY, i would of never guessed that, i was certain we all will live forever lol…smh

  • Savannah

    Come on guys! They are just crickets…. now when them super-cockroaches (yall know the ones that are about as long as yalls hand!) start to die…..now thats the end of the world! Yall know cockroaches are almost impossible to kill! :~)

  • HOT G.R.I.T.S

    Yes yes these scriptures r true but read the revelations. FALL OF BABYLON. God is coming n yes bcuz we’ve been immoral but also because he promised he would come back for those who excepted his son n those who chose to live as righteously as flesh could.

    Matthew 24:9
    “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.
    Mark 13 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

    Pslams 1:1
    Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.

    The fool hath said in his heart there is no God.
    God bless you Sister.
