Whether it's through hibernation, clustering or moving indoors, animals and insects adapt to winter's colder conditions.
The winter of 2013-14 has been colder than normal in many parts of the Midwest and Northeast, which makes the caring of animals and insects a bit more difficult, experts said.
Dealing with lower temperatures will continue through at least March, according to AccuWeather.com long-range forecasters.
The weather pattern causing the persistent cold won't suddenly go away and stay away in coming weeks, Senior Meteorologist Paul Pastelok, the leader of AccuWeather.com's Long-Range Forecasting Team, said.
Honey bees start clustering above the bee brood when the temperatures reach about 59 F, Dewey M. Caron, an entomology professor and extension entomologist at the University of Delaware, said.
"As bees on the outside [of the cluster] get cold, they work their way inside so a different bee becomes an outside bee," Caron said.
The entire hive or nest is not heated, just the space they occupy, Caron said.
Honey is the fuel to heat the body; bees basically run their wing muscles without flying.
