How do cold blooded insects survive in the winter?

    Insects, just like alot of other creatures migrate to warmer climates when the weather starts to get too cold for them. Insects may also huddle up in large numbers underground until spring comes. Other insects may go into “torpor” or “diapause” which are short and long term states of suspension or sleep. Lastly, insects are also known to make their own antifreeze from glycerol, which helps to defend their bodies against the freezing, icy winds.
