Host Richard Hentschel talks about Overwintering Insects and all the snow and cold weather we have had. Insects are prepared to survive the below zero temperatures we have had this winter. Insects produce their own version of anti-freeze that allows them to survive quite well. They also lower the rate of consuming resources similar to what bears do.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
