Will bugs die over the winter?

DH and I had a bit of a debate over the weekend. Our greenhouse became infested with bugs towards the end of the growing season. As we were cleaning it out and throwing stuff into the compost heap over the weekend, he suggested that we do some sort of "bug bomb" to kill everything so the greenhouse would be ready for Spring. I thought that they would all die over the winter anyway, so we wouldn't need to use chemicals. (We've always grown organically.)

What do you think?
