Schopen Pest Solutions Gets Rid of Boxelder Bugs
What is a boxelder bug? Boxelder bugs are often found on and near boxelder trees. You’re likely to see these black bugs, with their orange or red markings, when the cooler weather of September and October draw near. They tend to disappear when the weather gets cold and spend the winter someplace warm. Boxelder bugs may also choose a place like a rock wall, firewood pile, or even under the siding of buildings. They may even go inside a home or foundation, and this is when they can become a nuisance. If you suspect you have a boxelder bug infestation in your home, call the friendly office staff at Schopen Pest Solutions to request a quote.
Signs of an Infestation of Boxelder Bugs
It’s hard to miss a boxelder bug infestation because they congregate in large numbers, forming a writhing mass as they attempt to get into a warm building. They’re not dangerous, but more of a nuisance because they invade homes and give off a bad smell. They don’t and they can’t reproduce indoors. They don’t damage gardens or buildings, although their nymphs can do minimal damage to trees as they hatch and begin to feed on the seeds and leaves. When crushed, they can leave stains.
