Box Elder Bug Pest Control | Beeline Pest Control of Utah
Each season brings out a different aspect of nature’s unrivaled beauty. As summer comes to its annual close, fall signals the onset of cooler weather with brilliant displays of color.
When viewed from afar, box elder bugs could be considered one of our area’s exquisite seasonal sights. Gathered in droves with their stark black and red bodies mingling together in a graceful mass, they resemble some sort of exotic flowering plant. Of course, when that mass is blanketing the side of your house and working its way inside, bit by bit, around your windows and doors, it loses a great deal of its wonder. If you’ve been in the area for a while, you’re probably accustomed to seeing the collective relocation rituals of box elder bugs in Salt Lake City, Utah. We don’t usually pay much attention to them during summer when they’re most active, but once temperatures start dropping, they huddle together and soak in the sun on our homes or the heat inside them as the case may be.
Health Dangers of Bed bugs
First and foremost, if your home is being overrun by box elder bugs in Salt Lake City, Utah, there’s no immediate cause for concern. Unlike fleas, ticks, and bed bugs, they don’t feed on the blood of people or pets. As opposed to rats, mice, roaches and other undesirables, they won’t bring diseases and additional pests into your home. While some intruders like to feed on the insects attracted to your property this time of the year, elder bugs’ natural defense systems make them a less-than-enticing snack for spiders and certain other forces.
Although elder bugs move much like locusts, they won’t swarm in and devour all your trees, flowers and autumn crops in one fell swoop. With some larger infestations, they have been known to eventually suck all the life out of the trees and other surrounding plant life they choose to call home. They’re not looking to raid your pantry or silently eat your home right out from under you. While any number of reports insist they don’t bite, those of us who’ve felt their sharp little pinpricks might argue that point. That being said, they don’t have venom, break the skin or cause adverse side-effects.
Going back to their ingrained safeguard against predators, it’s not exactly a pleasant scenario. When these insects feel threatened or happen to be smashed by a shoe or rolled-up newspaper, they give off a noxious odor. Whether as a result of being squashed or simply going about their daily routines, they also tend to leave stains in their wakes. Aside from both those facts, having them congregating in the upper corners of your bedroom while you’re trying to sleep or accidentally dropping in on a meal can be a bit unnerving.
