they Hide in little tiny cracks and holes, amost anywhere, doors that haven`t been opened for a while (sheds and stuff) windows that haven`t been opened for a while, hollow plant tubes that dried and broke (ladybugs love those), there are Everywhere! honestly!
they`ll even get inside uncovered Padlock key holes :)
As a kid I had a ant farm of sorts. The Harvester ants arrived in a plastic tube in the middle of winter..... dead to the world, but I followed the instructions and didn't throw them away and low and behold, they all came back to life after warming up. I think bugs can go in and out of a hibernation state (of sorts) to survive temp swings.
