This winter's freezing temperatures, snowfall and of course 'polar vortex' has made spring all the more desirable.

The first day of spring is just a few days away and many people are asking what effect the polar vortex has had and will have on spring's bugs and blooms.

To discuss this, Sheilah Kast is joined by Michael J. Raupp, Professor of Entomology at the University of Maryland.

Raupp also writes the blog 'Bug of the Week' you can read his post on the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug here.
