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?
