> Are insects fossilized the same way that dinosaurs are?
That depends a little on qhat you mean by "the same way".
Insect fossils tend to be either compressions or "mummies" (such
as found in amber). Often all that is left is a cast or mold
of the external form.
Still, when more is present it is mineralized, much the same as
fossil bone is.
The peace of God be with you.
