Boxelder Bug control



Having a Boxelder Bug issue?

We can help.

Boxelder bugs lay eggs on boxelder tree leaves and eat seed from maple trees. When the season changes from summer to fall, you will start to see an abundance of boxelder bugs congregating around your home. They are starting the nesting process for winter. As a group, boxelder bugs will get behind the siding of your home and make there way in to survive winter in the midwest. When we come out, we treat from the base of the home, around all window and door frames to the roof line. This will not only flush the boxelder bugs out from every crack and crevice but eliminate them and keep others from wanting to nest on or in your home. Give us a call today to eliminate your boxelder bug issue.

Boxelder Bug Facts

Boxelder Bug Control
Boxelder Bug
  • The boxelder bug (Boisea trivittata) is a North American species of true bug.
  • It is found primarily on boxelder trees, as well as maple and ash trees.
  • The adults are about 13 millimetres (0.51 in) long with a dark brown or black coloration, relieved by red wing veins and markings on the abdomen; nymphs are bright red.
  • The boxelder bug is sometimes confused with insects belonging to the genus Jadera, and with the western boxelder bug (Boisea rubrolineata) which it is related to the name "stink bug"
  • Boxelder bugs belong to the family Rhopalidae, the so-called "scentless plant bugs".
  • boxelder bugs are strong-smelling and will release a pungent and bad-tasting compound upon being disturbed to discourage predation.
  • The pungent odor allows them to form conspicuous aggregations without being preyed on.
  • Boxelder Bugs feed, lay eggs and develop on boxelder trees, most commonly occurring on female trees as they produce seeds.
  • Boxelder bugs prefer seeds; however, they also suck leaves. They can be frequently observed on maple as these trees provide them with seeds as well.
  • Boxelder bugs overwinter in plant debris or protected human-inhabited places and other suitable structures.
