Richard Hentschel discusses where and how insects in the landscape spend the cold winter months. Monarch Butterflys migrant south to warm weather, others gather in great numbers as adults, yet others find shelter in leaf litter or under cracks and crevices. Honey bees do not go dormant at all and remain alive generating heat to keep the hive alive.
