For starters, fewer insects would die off during the winter, which means there will be more insects than normal. As it gets warmer earlier in the year, insects will breed earlier than usual. This is also the time when crops are beginning to grow and they're at their most vulnerable. Warmer temperatures tend to speed up the life cycle of insects. That means they'll mature and reproduce faster and there will be less time between generations. Not only can this be bad news for farmers, but it could also mean diseases like malaria and West Nile virus might become a more widespread problem.
