When you run command "screen -list" you will get similar output:

Your inventory:      (08/16/2009 02:30:20 PM)        (Detached)

Where 23866 is the PID of the screen-process, which you can kill.
Remember that this will also kill the processes inside those screens.

You can also destroy those screen by running "screen -x 23866" and
typing ctrl+a+k or exiting from them normally using ctrl+d.
