Boxing Out Boxelder Bugs

Boxelder bugs are named after their common presence around boxelder trees that belong to the Acer genus, which includes ash trees, maple trees, and boxelder trees. Though not harmful to humans, they can become a nuisance, especially during warming and cooling conditions when they thrive and gather near structures and homes in large numbers. These pests may secrete foul-smelling odors and leave stains on clothing or surfaces. Our fast, safe, and effective treatments will help alleviate bug pressures on your home.

Are Boxelder Bugs a Threat?

During warmer weather, boxelder bugs primarily remain outdoors. However, as temperatures drop, you may find them seeking shelter in your home through small cracks and gathering in siding or walls.

While these small pests do not pose a health threat or damage to your home, they can be a bothersome nuisance, particularly due to their tendency to travel in large groups. Dead boxelder bugs in your home may attract other pests that feed on insect carcasses.

Our Boxelder Bug Control Process

  1. Thorough Assessment: Our Interstate technician will perform a comprehensive inspection of your property to determine the extent of the boxelder bug infestation and identify the affected areas.
  2. Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the inspection results, we will create a personalized treatment plan specifically designed to address the boxelder bug infestation in your home. This may involve targeted insecticide applications and/or crack and crevice treatments depending on the severity of the problem.
  3. Monitoring and Reevaluation: After the initial treatment we will also provide recommendations for long-term preventive measures to keep your home free from future boxelder bug invasions.
