Winter Pests

Winter is a problem for most insects. For many, food options are reduced. Low temperatures are likely to cause their muscles to completely stop. They don’t generate heat through metabolism like we do. If they did, their small size would make it unlikely that they could retain that heat (too much surface area to body mass ratio) nor would the food be available to fuel that heat. So nature “tells” these insects to “shut down” and wait until spring.
