One of the most important environmental factors determining the performance of insects in dry areas is the level of humidity. There are few general survival strategies used by insects to be drought resistant. They either may evolve ability to tolerate extensive loss of body water by means of anhydrobiosis or they may develop drought tolerance by reducing transcuticular permeability of their body wall . Finally, they may use behavioral implications for avoiding excessive water loss such as migration to protected sites.
