Boxelder Bug Facts

  • The boxelder bug (Boisea trivittata) is a North American species of true bug.

  • Boxelder Bugs are 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.
