What Are Boxelder Bugs?

Boxelder bugs are nuisance pests that are often found congregating on the sunny side of homes and other structures in late spring and early fall. They get their name from their fondness for Boxelder trees, on which they feed on the leaves, flowers, and seed pods. While they are not known to transmit diseases or damage property, their large numbers can be a real nuisance. If you’re dealing with a boxelder bug infestation, TruTech Pest & Wildlife Control can help. We’ll work with you to safely and effectively control these unwanted guests from your property.

Where Do Boxelder Bugs Come From?

The pests most commonly invade boxelder, maple, and ash trees. They are attracted to these trees because they provide food and shelter for the adults and nymphs. The adults feed on the sap of these trees while the nymphs feed on the leaves. The female bugs lay their eggs in cracks and crevices on the tree’s bark. When the eggs hatch, the nymphs begin feeding on the leaves of the tree.

The Effects of a Boxelder Bug Infestation

Boxelder bugs are pesky little insects that are known to invade properties in large numbers. These insects are attracted to boxelder trees and can quickly become a nuisance if not controlled. If you have noticed boxelder bugs on your property, it’s important to take action to get rid of them before they become a bigger problem.
Boxelder bugs typically feed on the leaves, flowers, and seed pods of boxelder trees. While they don’t typically cause any damage to the trees themselves, their feeding can result in
unsightly staining and discolouration of the foliage. In addition, large infestations of boxelder bugs can suck the sap from the tree branches, causing the branches to die back.

While boxelder bugs are mostly harmless, they can become a nuisance when they invade homes and other buildings in large numbers. These insects are attracted to warmth and often enter homes through cracks and crevices in the walls or foundation. Once inside, they can be difficult to get rid of and may cause staining on walls and furnishings as well as an unpleasant odour.
