While most Minnesota residents welcome the fall with open arms and a rake, a few of our little bitty residents scramble to find warm air and protection from the cold winter. Their ½ inch long body leaves its original nesting area in the trees and struts it’s black body with orange or red markings into all sorts of different cracks and spaces around the home. No, we aren’t talking about your grandma that flies to Florida after the first freeze, we are talking about the Boxelder bugs that become a real nuisance in the fall and winter months for all home and business owners. Fortunately, Ecotech, a highly experienced exterminator company, is here for all of your Boxelder bug control needs!
