..., but it is unknown whether the leak of the gut microbiome is a possible immune trigger in the cold. We developed a novel feeding protocol to load the gut of locusts ( Locusta migratoria ) with fluorescent bacteria before exposing them to −2°C for up to 48 h. No bacteria were recovered from the hemolymph of cold...
