No Monarchs, No Ladybugs, No Nothing In NW Indiana

We usually have lots of butterflies and ladybugs in our garden.
This year I have seen only two Monarchs which were around only for a
few days. I have not seen a single ladybug, stinkbug or any regular
garden pest this entire summer.
We had very heavy and continuing rains since Spring. I have never in
all my years seen the trees and other green so heavy and thick with
The amount of rainfall must have wiped out all the young bugs or
eggs in the Spring.
It's a weird feeling to see certain wild flowers and bushes which
usually have hoards of insects feeding from them entirely empty of
any insects at all this entire summer.
Anyone else in NW Indiana notice this happening in their area?
