On average, five acres of grassland contain about one ton of insects.

The number of predatory invertebrates such as beetles may exceed 2,000 per square centimeter of ground.

One acre of hay meadow may contain 2.25 million spiders. Each of these spiders will eat 2 insects a week for 6 months, which works out at about 108 million insects.
