Why do insects lay cocoons?
Insects do not lay cocoons. Immature insects that are ready to become adults through complete metamorphosis create cocoons or pupae. Inside this structure their body "liquefies" and their body plan is radically changed. An example of this would be a yellow monarch Caterpillar creating a cocoon and emerging as an orange butterfly.
