You might not see as many of those pesky stink bugs when the weather warms up.

A 2014 study published by researchers with Virginia Tech says the recent Polar Vortex may have killed 95 percent of all stink bugs.

During the winter, stink bugs generally find shelter and then come back out as the weather gets warmer.

The bugs have been identified in 44 different states as well as the District of Columbia, and have been in the United States since the 1990s, according to pestworld.org.
