MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Stink bugs are showing up in the Twins Cities area and they are living up to their name.

The bugs are very destructive and survive off the sap of young leaves and fruits.

They’re usually brown, green, or grey in color and they get their name from emitting a foul odor when disturbed.

Experts said stink bugs spread quickly because they have no natural predator to stop or slow them down and they are pretty tough to get rid of without stinking up your whole house.

Experts say the best thing to do is to put them in soapy water, flush them down the toilet, or use a vacuum to suck them up.
