Stink bug in bath vent

Is there an easy way to remove screen on bathroom vent? Bumper crop of stink bugs this year, one trapped there. Had a few in the maxxfan vent, that screen was easy to remove by twisting plastic tabs.

Does top of vent come off if screen doesn't?

I'd just use a fan inside and blow it back out the way it came in. Try a hair dryer.

If yours is anything like mine simply turn the vent knob to open the vent then, get on a ladder on the outside, reach down with a pair of tweezers and spear the bugger.

Or, get a nephew to do it.

How about flicking the screen sharply with a fingertip? I'm always popping leaves out that way.
