Why are Boxelder bugs problematic?

Boxelder bugs most often become problematic in the fall when they’re known to swarm homes, sheds and garages. If you’re currently experiencing issues with swarms of Boxelder bugs, it’s likely best to call a professional pest control company like EcoTech.

Problems That Can Occur if Boxelder bugs swarm your home

If Boxelder bugs begin to invade your home, they can be quite problematic. While they typically aren’t known to bite, their mouthparts have been known to pierce the skin and cause slight irritation. In addition, if Boxelder bugs are crushed they can produce a strong odor and their fecal matter can leave red or orange stains on fabric in your home.

How to prevent boxelder bugs from invading your home

To prevent Boxelder bugs from invading your home this fall, it’s important to repair any holes you may have in window and door screens and to also seal any cracks or crevices that you have around your home. Be sure to use a quality silicone caulk that will stand up to the harsh Minneapolis winters. It’s best not to kill these bugs if they’re in your walls because the dead bodies can attract other insects.
