Boxelder Bugs

Boxelder bugs are insects that belong to the family Rhopalidae. They are named after the boxelder tree, which is one of their preferred food sources. Boxelder bugs are often found in large numbers in the spring and fall as they seek shelter from the cold winter weather.

Boxelder bugs are typically about 1/2 inch in length and have a distinctive black and red or orange coloration on their wings and body. They have a long, thin body shape and are flat on the back. They can often be found in large clusters on or near boxelder trees, as well as other trees, buildings, and structures.

While boxelder bugs are not harmful to humans or pets, they can be a nuisance if they enter homes or buildings in large numbers. They may also cause some minor damage to plants, particularly boxelder trees, by feeding on the leaves, flowers, and seeds.
