PINNACLE, N.C. - Lots of Stink Bugs are showing up across the Piedmont Triad.

"They just find a crack and they come in," said Kelly Cave who lives in Pinnacle. The local artist has tried everything but can't keep the bugs out of her studio behind her home.

"Best thing we've been able to do so far is vacuum them," said Cave.

Experts say they typically try to come in where its warm to get away from the cool fall air. This year, due to our early warm Spring, the bugs bred two generations instead of the typical one.

The bugs wont hurt you but can create problems for fruit trees, tomatoes and beans.
