This year in Calhoun there is a large crop of stink bugs and spiders.

Its been a great year for all bugs, including flies and gnats, likely linked to the rainy season.

Stink bugs are getting ready for winter and that means they're coming indoors.

Stanley Mills, director of the Division of Environmental Services with the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department, says they're aren't more of the little brown creatures out there this year, it's just that they are all now moving around looking to find a place to stay safe and warm.

"Other than being a nuisance, they do not harm anything," Mills said.

There appears to be a bigger crop of spiders including the giant Wood Spider.

They too are seeking shelter.
