Things You Should Know About Boxelder Bugs

  • Boxelder bug exterminators categorized them as nuisance pests.
  • The bug’s lifestyle makes it difficult to get rid of boxelder bugs. 
  • These bugs stay warm and hibernate inside the walls and crevices of  homes in your area.
  • In late March or early April, the adults come out of hibernation to lay eggs.
  • Once the eggs hatch, the new nymphs mature and mate in order to lay more eggs, perpetuating the boxelder bug infestation cycle.
  • If you don’t catch these bugs early, you’ll have a full-fledged boxelder bug infestation on your hands. And killing them yourself is not the answer. Boxelder bugs produce a yellow stain and foul odor when squished.

Helpful Boxelder Bug Prevention Tips:

  • Ensuring seals around doors, windows and foundations in homes around is important.
  • Make sure door and window screens are in good condition, as well.
  • To temporarily get rid of boxelder bugs in a certain area of your home, you can vacuum them up and seal the contents in the freezer overnight. They won’t survive the cold temperatures.

How to Get Rid of Box Elder bugs | Fox Pest Control

You've probably seen them,

those super annoying red-and-black flying bugs that come swarming in the spring or fall.

We're talking about Box Elder bugs.

Most often, they're looking for a warm place to hang out for the winter.

Box Elder Bugs know how to slip in under your siding,

or around your doors and windows.

They can nest in your walls and lay their eggs,

so come springtime, they're back by the thousands.

They're hard to get rid of too —

box elder bugs stink if you squish them,

and can leave a messy, yellow stain on your furniture or carpet.

Other pests and rodents don't even want to eat them because they smell so bad.

If you think box elder bugs are lurking around your home,

don't try to handle it yourself.

Just give us a call, and one of our friendly experts will come out that same day

to track down those stinky pests and customize a plan to get rid of them for good.

All of our Pest Pros are licensed, certified and insured,

so you can rest at ease knowing that you're in good hands.

And here's the best part:

All of our work is 100% guaranteed.

That means if the box elder bugs do return,

we'll come back and service them for free.

So call us today for a free quote and free same-day inspection.

Why not have one less thing to worry about?

Fox Pest Control. No Bugs. Simply Better.

Boxelder Bug Control FAQ

Why should I get rid of Boxelder bugs?

Boxelder bugs crawl into the wall voids of your home during the winter to stay warm. Even though they aren’t dangerous, eventually they could create a massive infestation throughout your house.

How do I know if I have a major infestation of Boxelder bugs?

You know you have to get rid of box elder bugs if you see them crawling out of electrical wall outlets, ceiling lights or fans, or other cracks inside the house.

Do Boxelder bugs bite? Are Boxelder bugs dangerous?

Boxelder bugs don’t bite; they can’t transmit disease; they don’t eat or contaminate our food; and they don’t cause structural damage. But they can be a significant nuisance when congregating in large numbers in and around your home..

How does Fox Pest Control treat Boxelder bugs?

When a Fox Pest Control technician comes, they will inspect your property, make an assessment based on the Boxelder bug activity, and implement a unique treatment plan tailored to your needs.

What products does Fox use to get rid of Boxelder bugs?

Each situation is different, and we may use different products in different cases. You can speak to our customer service representatives for a detailed list of products used during your treatment program.

Can I get rid of Boxelder bugs by myself?

The most effective way to get rid of a box elder bug infestation is with Fox Pest Control. Non-professional products could kill a few bugs but force the rest to hide in deeper cracks and crevices, thereby further entrenching themselves in your home and worsening the problem.
