Keep Bugs From Making Your Home Their Home
In the autumn months, boxelder bugs, stinkbugs, and ladybugs start to panic. They will almost certainly die if they're unable to find a safe, warm place to spend the winter. Keep them out of your home with screens on your heating vents, chemical deterrents, and infestation removal from Aardvark Pest Control!
For a boxelder bug, stinkbug, or ladybug, your house is an ideal place to spend the cold and snowy months as it is dry and warm. Properly seal your home to keep them out! Caulk cracks and replace the seals around windows and doors, and ensure brush and waste are kept away from your home. Keeping your home clear of branches and yard waste will make it more difficult for these insects to invade your home.

What Is a Boxelder Bug?
Boxelder bugs are approximately half an inch long and have a distinctive shape, with a narrow, elongated body and six legs. They have black bodies with red or orange markings on their wings and abdomen.
Boxelder bugs feed on the leaves, seeds, and stems of box elder and other trees and can cause significant damage to the foliage, aesthetic appeal, and longevity of trees on your property.
Is the Boxelder Bug Dangerous?
Boxelder bugs aren’t harmful to humans or pets but can become a nuisance when they enter homes and business properties in search of warmth during the winter. Boxelder bugs release a foul odor when disturbed or crushed, and their excrement is well-known for leaving stubborn stains on surfaces.
While boxelder insects don’t threaten human or pet health, their presence, the foul odor they’re known for, and the damaging properties of their excrement can diminish your ability to enjoy your property.
Don’t let this pest get out of control on your property. Enlist the help of a certified boxelder exterminator and say goodbye to your unwanted houseguests forever.
