The Cold Polar Vortex may have killed off the majority of stink bug population

Remember a few weeks ago the Cold Polar vortex that was hitting a good portion of the country, Well it turned out that the frigid temperatures may prove to be somewhat beneficial in the spring.

A press release from the National Pest Management Association cites a Virginia Tech research experiment that estimates the Polar Vortex may have killed 95 percent of the stink bugs that hadn’t found shelter to stay warm this winter. The pesky little brown bug got its name because when it feels threatened, it lets off a musty, chemical-like odor.
