Box Elder bugs feed on the seeds, developing leaves, and occasionally fruit of plants such as box elder, maple, ash, cherry, plum, peach, apple, grape, strawberry, and even some grasses. Despite the wide variety, they are mostly dependent up on the female boxelder tree. Since their food is plant dependent, they are forced to overwinter which is their winter-dormant version of hibernation until food is readily available again.
