What eats box elder bugs?

Natural predators that feed on Box Elder bugs include rodents, predacious insects and arachnids, as well as avian predators. Even though there seem to be plenty of predators to keep the population in check, Box Elder bugs typically reproduce more rapidly than they are consumed especially since they possess the ability to emit an odorous deterrent to their predators. When considering control measures, it is important to consider the impact the efforts may have on the non-target predators.
