Do You Have a Boxelder Bug Problem?
Learn the Key Characteristics of Boxelder Bugs and How to Identify Them
You may notice groups of these distinctive bugs sunning themselves on your house in the fall. As the temperatures drop, the masses try to move inside and make a mess of your walls and carpets. Don’t crush them on your furnishings – that will create both an odor and a stain. There are better ways to handle this bug!
What Does It Eat?
Boxelder bugs feed on soft plant tissue.
Where Does It Hide?
In the fall and winter, Boxelder bugs find their way into buildings through cracks and crevices. They generally remain inside walls or behind siding until spring when they may gather on a sunny spot on the brick or siding. Heating units may revive Boxelder bugs when activated in the winter.
What Can It Do to Me?
Boxelder bugs are a nuisance because they usually appear in large numbers. They don’t bite but may stain walls, curtains, and other surfaces.
