Box Elder Bug Pest Control
BOX ELDER BUGS
Box elder bugs look like small black and red beetles about half an inch long, which tend to gather in large colonies. During cold winter months, box elder bugs move to warmer environments - like your home or business. Check for them around building foundations and ground-floor windows. Search for cracks and crevices in windows and doors, or surfaces that get a lot of direct sunlight. Also, be sure to check if you have their summertime home (the Boxelder tree) anywhere around you, be on the lookout when it starts to get cold.
Although box elder bugs rarely bite, their feces can stain curtains, clothing, and other materials. So, despite only being a seasonal pest, they can leave a lasting mark that just might reoccur year-after-year if not professionally handled. Don’t wait for Wisconsin to get warmer before you’re free of box elder bugs—contact The Bee Guy for fast results.
