Spring and Box Elder Bugs are Upon Us! How to prepare.

Spring and Box Elder Bugs are Upon Us!

box elder bugs

Spring is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! The warmer breeze and blooming flowers are definitely something to celebrate. Sadly, box elder bugs are celebrating right along with us. They’ve been hibernating in our homes and attics for months now and they also want a chance to enjoy the sunshine and feed on the seeds of maple, oak, box elder and ash trees.

These black and reddish-orange bugs are harmless, but that doesn’t make them less of a nuisance. They’re infamous for gathering in extremely large groups—we’re talking about several thousand all at once. They also like to chill out on the side of homes and in gardens which puts our plants at risk of being destroyed before you have the chance to enjoy them.

Box elder bugs be gone

The key to avoiding a box elder bug invasion is to give the inside and outside of your home a thorough inspection. Caulk all window and door cracks and repair any holes in your screens. If you do happen to find a mess of squirmy box elder bugs in your home you can try vacuuming them up. Yes, we said vacuum! This is the quickest and most efficient way to eliminate them.  Just be sure to empty the vacuum bag in an outside trash far away from your home.

For an outdoor invasion you can use almost any insecticide to eliminate them or you can contact us, your reputable Utah pest control company, for termination assistance. We’ve been dealing with these annoying pests for years and years and can remove them for you in a jiffy!

Reviews from Utah Residents

I have had Beeline spraying my house for several years now. Adam is the best to work with. Very knowledgeable, thorough, respectful of my home and friendly. If you have any bug issues, I would highly recommend calling.

Tanner is very efficient and pleasant to work with. He has treated our properties several times. We started using Beeline several years ago when we had an ant problem in our house. Since we started using Beeline, we don’t have that problem any longer.
