Does the heat make them come up for air?

Do insects get so hot inside the dead wood that they must surface? The female red-bellied woodpecker that we watched so long and at such extremely close range wasn't required to do any pecking at all. She just moved along the limb hanging upside down and was dining royally, it seemed. The light was just right during the supper hour for seeing every tiny detail.
