Insects overrun Locust Grove family

Posted: Updated:
LOCUST GROVE, Ga. -

It looks like something out a horror movie at a Locust Grove home as Kudzu bugs seem to be overrunning a family.

Linda Smith first spotted the bugs earlier in the week and seemed to multiple overnight from hundreds to thousands and eventually turned into millions.

The family tells FOX 5 News that it looks like it was snowing bugs with swarms of the little black insects blanketing the house and trees.

After gallons of insecticide to try to rid themselves of the bugs, they continue to thrive.

They say they traced the problem to a soybean field on a neighboring land. They are trying to make contact with the owner of the field in hopes they can work together to get rid of the invaders.
