Also some Insects have so called Anti -Freeze .These specialized carbohydrates known as cryoprotectants” ,  are sugars trehalose and mannitol. They simply form glycerol, want we call anti-freeze This anti freeze helps the insects from freezing and forming ice crystals in the body. In summery Insects that are consider urban  pests, most likely form aggregations inside. Though there are Insects ,that we may encounter that have this anti-freeze .
