Microplastics

If a plastic eating bug didget loose in the 'wild' the world human built infrastructure would literally start falling apart, including may farm gates.
when we think about it, everything in our civilisation uses plastics, but I am pretty sure it is only a matter of time, before there is some sort of microbe that will decompose plastics.

I am sure I read that in Australia, there was a dog groomer, who always used to apply organophosphates to the dogs in the same spot in the yard outside, anyway, they found microbes in the soil there that decomposed the insecticides.
 
That’s nothing compared with the Americans… they round bale there hay then Chuck it straight into a straw grinder with the wrap on and everything and feed it there cows happy as Larry 🥰🥴🤦‍♂️
I watched a video of a big straw grinder over in America and couldn’t believe it

it wouldn’t be a big job to have someone with a Stanley knife taking the net off first
