Generally harmless to humans, Boxelder bugs are nuisance pests, as they gather in large numbers on the warm walls of a home or business.
Boxelder bugs love the warm sun, like the weather we hope for in Star at the Summer Baseball Classic games. You can often find boxelder bugs basking on the sides of homes or buildings, sometimes in large swarms. Generally harmless to humans, boxelder bugs prefer to eat tree seeds in summer. When the weather begins to cool off, or the seed supply is depleted, they prefer tree and garden fruits and can ruin your crops. If you attempt to destroy the boxelder bugs on your own, other beetles that feed on their carcasses can create a larger insect problem for you. Our technicians can eliminate your boxelder bug and scavenger insect problem, and that’s a home run!
