Have you seen these creepy crawling box elder bugs infesting your home this season? Known for showing their bug-eyed faces in the early spring and late summer, you may be in the middle of a wild infestation going on in your house right now. These pesky critters can drive any home or business owner crazy. At EcoTech, we work to safely remove these insects from your property in a safe and effective way.
When are Box Elder Bugs Common?
Box Elder bugs will typically live and mate on female box elder trees during the spring and early summer months. During these months, we rarely get called for home or business infestations. However, in the off season, box elder bugs are doing everything they can to survive the cooler months and keep themselves warm. Therefore, infestations most often occur in early spring and late summer.
Are Box Elder Bugs Harmful?
The good news about these pesky creatures is that they cannot harm you. While extremely obnoxious, box elder bugs do not typically carry disease and pose little threat to you, your pets or even your houseplants. However, they do have one annoying habit that you’ll want out of your home or business immediately. Box Elder bugs will stain your property’s surface during excrement. It is hard to get out and quite unpleasant to think about. So while not harmful, these bugs should always be dealt with if found in your home or business.
