Rove Pest Control: Box Elder Bug Control

thumb_behavior and characteristic of box elder bugs

Nothing brings out the crowds like the warmth of summer sunshine. If you head to Walton Park for the four-day Summerfest event, you will see vendors, lots of food, the annual medallion hunt, a carnival, and a parade. Summer warmth not only appeals to people, it also brings out millions of box elder bugs.

Nuisance Pests

Box elder bugs feed off of a variety of trees and will feast upon your grass as well. They do not cause any significant damage to your maple, box elder, apple trees, or lawn, however, they can become a nuisance during the late summer and fall. When temperatures begin to decrease, they will congregate on the southern sides of your home. Some swarms can become so massive that your wall will become a mass of writhing black and red. When late fall hits, the adults will seek shelter for overwintering. You will begin to see them in your home. If there are cracks or holes in your weather stripping, you will be sharing your bedroom with hundreds of box elder bugs.

Under Attack

Box elder bugs do not bite or sting, but they do love to fly. The unfortunate thing is they are wretched flyers. Imagine a drunk crop duster flying with a blindfold and you will be halfway there. The disturbance caused by you walking out your front door will cause hundreds of them to take off in a flying frenzy bouncing off your forehead, getting stuck in your hear, and finding their way underneath your collar.
