What’s Buggin’ You?: Not Stink Bugs, because Polar Vortex Killed off Most of Them

Close up of a stink bugThe polar vortex that put most of the U.S. in a deep freeze last month appears to have had a chilling effect on the stink bug population.

Scientists from Virginia Tech indicate 95 percent of stink bugs likely died as a result of the wicked winter weather.

The few that are able to survive cold blasts like the one in January do so because they find warm(ish) hiding spots, according to a 2014 study cited by the Harrisburg, Pa., Patriot-News.

The news isn’t all good, though. Many of the eggs adult stink bugs laid before the polar vortex likely survived, meaning there will be a fresh batch soon.
