Arthro-Pod Episode 31: Winter is coming for insects

Hi there bug lovers! On today's show Jody and Jonathan discuss how insects survive the falling temperatures of winter. While some may just wait out the cold as an egg, others may stick around as an adult form which can lead to negative interactions in our homes. How can we prevent invaders and which are the most likely to be found indoors? Tune in to find out!
