Summer has come and gone, fall is officially here and that means another Minnesota winter is sure to follow. If you’re like most people, you probably find yourself spending more and more time inside the house.  However, you and your family aren’t the only ones trying to hide from the cooler weather.

How to Control Box Elder Bugs MN

Box Elder Bugs cause concern in the fall when they gather in considerable numbers on the warm outside walls of homes. Similar to Asian lady beetles, (also known as the multicolored Asian lady beetle, and (because it invades homes in October in preparation for hibernation) as Halloween lady beetle) and other seasonal invaders, box elder bugs sometimes find their way into houses looking for a suitable place to over winter.  When they gain entry to buildings through cracks or other openings they remain in wall cavities and will occasionally emerge inside the home in the spring.  They will not breed indoors, so there is no danger of starting an “infestation”.

Box Elder BugsBoxelder bugs are common pests over much of the United States. Adults are about 1/2 inch long and are bright red or black with red lines down their back. Box Elder bugs are a common insect found in Minnesota and are often a common problem, especially during the spring and early summer.

These insects feed primarily by sucking juices from the box elder tree, but are sometimes found on other plants.They do very little damage to the trees they attack, but at certain times of the year they can become a nuisance. Box elder bugs develop by gradual metamorphosis, from egg, to nymph, then to adult. Adult box elder bugs enter homes and builders throughout the year trying to find shelter. They are small and can fit through small cracks, under windows and around the foundation. Oftentimes you will not even realize you have an infestation because they will lay quiet throughout the winter until the sun comes out and they come out to soak up the heat.They will then emerge in the spring to seek out host trees on which to feed and lay eggs.

The eggs of box elder bugs are reddish brown in color, and have adapted this coloring to allow them to stay well hidden in the bark of the host tree. After only a few days they eggs hatch into red and gray nymphs, eventually maturing to only begin the breeding process again.
During the winter months these bugs do not feed or reproduce but oftentimes find refuge in your home and on the side of buildings. Until it gets warm again, oftentimes you will not realize you have an infestation until it’s spring and the bugs emerge in mass numbers. To stop box elder bugs from multiplying, it is often helpful to remove their host trees from the area surrounding your home, but the adults can still fly from locations off the property.
