Host Richard Hentschel talks with Russ Higgins about insects and their life cycles and how and where they spend the winter. Russ described insects with complete life cycles and provided examples such as the state butterfly, the monarch. Tomato hornworm is another example. Some overwinter as an adult larva or grub stage and pupate later the next spring.

Richard relates news that the Japanese beetles may not have survived the winter months of 2013 and 2014 in the great numbers of the past few seasons
