Most insects, like reptiles, are cold blooded and disappear before the early signs of winter. Their bodies respond to temperature: They find a warmer climate during winter by migrating elsewhere and returning in the spring. Many insects hibernate during colder months by falling into a deep sleep. Ants thrive in deep underground colonies where they have food stored. When the light of the fall sky diminishes, they begin to enter their wintertime sleep pattern.
Many insects are also able to reduce their bodily water content to sustain sleep during the winter. Some bugs replace the water in their systems with chemicals remotely similar to the antifreeze we put in our vehicles. The technical term for it is called glycerol. They also put on extra layers of fat to accommodate hibernation and lack of access to food.
